The College of St. Scholastica

As a student in St. Scholastica’s Theology and Religious Studies program, you will explore religions of the world to gain new cultural competence. You will broaden your horizons through an enhanced understanding of diverse beliefs and traditions.

The coursework will improve your ability to read, discuss and write about theological, religious and biblical topics. You will be able to speak to the role of faith, religion and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition in shaping meaning in personal and public contexts. You’ll also learn how to examine critical questions from a perspective of human dignity, social justice and religious values.

As with all St. Scholastica majors, you will benefit from small class sizes and individualized attention from your professors, and the coursework will sharpen your critical thinking, ethical decision-making and communication skills. Through a partnership, St. Scholastica students may also apply to a 4+1 program to earn a Master of Arts in Theology at an accelerated pace through Saint John’s School of Theology and Seminary.
