The mission of the undergraduate Program in Theology is to guide students in interpreting, reasoning, and understanding their faith. The Program’s goal is for students to engage in undergraduate-level learning in all areas of Catholic Theology: Scripture, the Church, the development and reception of doctrine, the Christian vision of the human person and the moral life, as well as the Church in relation to other religious traditions, science, education, law, and medicine. The Program seeks to cultivate informed thinkers and practitioners capable of lifelong theological study and applying their knowledge to diverse situations: among their families, colleagues, friends, patients, clients, and others whom they may encounter. Anchored on the University’s motto which is ‘Seeking the Truth’, students graduating from the Faculty of Theology should be clearly and positively initiated into the whole of theology and develop their capacity for critical reflection and personal study. They will find in the series of cycle the preparation for an academic career, the instruction required for the reception of priestly ministry and the theological formation needed for serious evangelization. The Programme is inclusive of the human sciences and it integrates a theological synthesis in fidelity to the Gospel, the Church’s Tradition and the Magisterium. Students of theology are expected at the end of their training to become theology teachers in various institutions; they could become counselors in the public and private sectors: banks, hospitals, prisons, film industry.
