Courses offered in the Department of Theology aim to promote a reflective exploration of (1) the religious dimension of human experience; (2) the sources and historical development of the Christian, and in particular the Roman Catholic, religious tradition; (3) the major themes in the Christian understanding of the relation between God and human beings; (4) relations between among Christianity, other religions and contemporary secular culture.

The study of theology offers students an opportunity not only to learn about the Christian religious heritage but also to develop such basic skills as textual interpretation and critical argumentation and to develop a deeper personal sensitivity to the fundamental questions of the meaning of human life in the world.
