Program description

Theology is the study of the nature of God and religious belief based on Catholic writings and tradition. The Theology program encourages students to develop a critical approach to the problems and challenges facing modern society while upholding and respecting the Catholic intellectual tradition.

The Faculty of Theology offers civil and ecclesiastical programs suitable as a preparation both for various ministries and for graduate research in theology.

In addition to the foundational courses,* the Theology undergraduate program opens the door to a solid understanding of Christian faith and how to integrate it into daily life through courses in theology and philosophy. Students are also given an opportunity to explore specific subjects in greater depth.

A student enrolled in the Honours Bachelor Theology program must add a complimentary major in Human Relations and Spirituality or Social Communication, or a minor in Conflict Studies, Group Intervention and Leadership, Human Relations and Spirituality, Philosophical Theology, Philosophy or Social Communications.

*The foundational courses are a compulsory part of every bachelor’s degree program offered at Saint Paul University.
