The MA in Theology brings together two, complementary poles of theological
reflection: retrieval and appropriation. The program at once equips students with
the methodological and conceptual tools necessary for understanding classic
theological texts within their historical, cultural, and ecclesial contexts and at the
same time encourages students to bring these texts into critical conversation with
the contemporary world, giving students the opportunities and skills necessary to
engage in the project of theological reflection.

There are two tracks in the MA in Theology program: Research and Religious
Education. Students apply for admission to the MA program in one of these tracks
and, upon admission, commit to fulfilling the requirements and following the
procedures for that particular track.

Student Handbook here.
