Theology/Theological Studies

Are you a current practitioner of a religious faith? Do you find the various aspects of that faith fascinating? Do you have unanswered questions about your faith that you long to know? A program in theology can help students form their own answers to such questions. A major in theology provides in-depth study into the stories, rituals, and teachings of a specific faith. Curriculum for this major generally includes systematic theology, historical theology, moral theology, doctrinal studies, dogmatics, apologetics, and applications to specific questions of ecclesiastical polity and religious life. Degrees are offered from undergraduate through graduate levels. Many courses are held in typical classroom settings, though some may require observations, interviews, or engagement in research. Some courses will likely entail visiting local worship centers of various faiths. Fieldwork, including service learning opportunities, is often available with most programs. Many opportunities exist for students graduating with a degree in theology, including work as a teacher, therapist, priest, nun, monk, minister, or rabbi.
