The Faculty of Theology: Critical Thought at the Service of Faith

Scripture and Tradition are essential foundations of theology. In the Faculty of Theology, theological research is enriched by a solid understanding of biblical and patristic sources in accord with the Catholic intellectual tradition.

Reflecting the Church’s richness and diversity, the Faculty includes an Institute of Eastern Christian Studies. Founded 25 years ago, the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute is rooted in the tradition of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church but includes study of all Eastern Christian traditions. Furthermore, in keeping with the ecumenical teaching of Vatican II, the Faculty, in collaboration with the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa, offers a program of Anglican Studies at the bachelor level and welcomes students from various ecclesial communities. 

The Faculty of Theology values sound research and teaching that serves the Church and the common good of the wider society. It offers various programs for people who are preparing for a particular ministry or who seek to pursue critical research in one of the fields of theology, including Biblical Studies, Eastern Christian Studies, Ethics, Spirituality, Systematic and Historical Theology, as well as Practical Theology.


The Faculty of Theology is accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS).
