understanding" is the classic definition of theology derived from St.
Anselm of Canterbury in the 11th century. As an academic
discipline, theology provides a coherent, systematic, and critical study
of divine revelation. Christian theology interprets the meaning and
history of the doctrines, liturgy and sacraments, the moral and spiritual
traditions of the church.
A major in Theology ( or the associate degree) offers an academic preparation for:
- Graduate programs in Theology or Religious Studies
- A theological foundation for graduate studies in related fields such as religious education, pastoral counseling, ministry
- A theological background for religion teachers and catechists, directors and coordinators of religious education, lay ministries e.g. liturgy, youth work, social services, pastoral, church - related positions, and leadership within church and society.
