Theology and Religious Studies represents an ideal liberal arts major that is attractive to graduate schools and employers alike because of the insights that students gain into the most profound questions of human existence and the skills that they acquire in critical analysis and problem solving. In addition to being explicitly shaped by Catholic Benedictine traditions, we engage and reflect on that heritage in dialogue with other religious traditions. Theology and Religious Studies provides opportunities for students to gain a critical appreciation for faith and religion. In order to meet the needs of a diverse student body, the Department offers a broad curriculum that includes courses in theology, biblical studies, ethics/moral theology, religions and culture, spirituality and world religions. The Department offers majors and minors in Theology and Religious Studies and in Catholic Studies.
