The MA in Theology course offerings are rooted in Duquesne University's Catholic identity and simultaneously attentive to the University's mission -- which includes a commitment to ecumenical and global concerns -- as well as attentiveness to the most pressing moral issues of our time.
Through completing required courses, elective courses, and an optional six-credit thesis, students will accomplish these student learning outcomes at the curricular level:
- Students will demonstrate comprehension of foundational areas of theology, including both Catholic and ecumenical perspectives.
- Students will analyze and critically engage both classical and contemporary theological sources.
- Students will present an integrated and self-appropriated stance regarding key questions and issues in theology.
- Students will demonstrate general knowledge of selected ecumenical, interreligious, and/or global perspectives as these inform Christian theological and ethical reflection.
