Theology and Ministry Program Overview

  1. Construct a critical, grounded understanding and appreciation of the roots and function of religion in life.
  2. Demonstrate consistently the dignity of the human person and the interrelatedness of all creation,
  3. Identify and explain central Catholic and Christian doctrines and ethical principles.
