Theology

In the Theology Department at St. Mary’s University, students explore the sources and ideas central to Christian faith while searching for practical application that faith has for the way people and communities live. Through critical investigation and the use of diverse methods, students in the Theology program apply critical thinking and interdisciplinary knowledge to understand the origins of Christianity and its meaning for today.

The interdisciplinary Theology curriculum at St. Mary’s is rooted in the Catholic and Marianist tradition of service while offering courses that are inclusive of all students and faith traditions. Students of all majors take at least two courses in Theology as part of the Core Curriculum. Through the open, critical study of scripture, moral theology and systemic theology, majors build on a commitment to the compatibility of faith and reason.
