Undergraduate Learning Outcomes

B.A. in Theology Goal

The comprehensive educational goal of the theology curriculum is theological literacy, that is, an intellectual formation — to a level legitimately expected of graduates of a Catholic university — that habituates students, through investigation of various theological sources, to approaches, responses, and critiques appropriate to this academic discipline: “faith seeking understanding.”

By the end of their program of studies, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the basic categories of theological reflection: biblical, historical, systematic and ethical;
  • Analyze texts for their theological content according to their particular literary genres and historical contexts;
  • Utilize effective theological methods of research and argumentation.
