Join the Conversation between Faith and Culture

In our Department of Theology, the conversation between faith and culture becomes intellectually alive as students and teachers engage scripture, tradition, experience and contemporary thought in search of understanding.

Students from various faith backgrounds and from many parts of the world come here to study theology. They benefit from the riches of Catholic theology and rigorous critical inquiry in a setting where we understand that religious questions are real and important, both for you and for the world.

Growing in knowledge of God and views of God found in different faith traditions will broaden your worldview, enrich your prayer and change your life.
