The Theology courses are designed to present an overview of the content of the Christian faith with opportunities to study the major world religions.
The Theology program for majors has as its primary purpose an academic study of the content of Christian doctrine in order to prepare students for graduate study, for teaching religious education or directing religious education programs, and for ecumenical dialogue in the community.
The Theology Department also offers Certificate programs at the basic and advanced levels. These programs are especially intended for persons engaged in religious education or various Church-related ministries. Admission to the certificate program presumes demonstrated competency in English 101 and 102 but does not require other preliminary College level courses. Students entering the program with advanced standing in Theology must complete one half of the credit hours in Theology at Thomas More College.
