Theology Core Requirements

You are here

In keeping with its commitment to educating the whole person, Immaculata requires all undergraduate students to complete two courses (six credits) in theology as part of the liberal arts core curriculum.  These courses aim to help you acquire a deeper understanding of yourself and our world by way of intellectual and reflective engagement with the dynamic tradition of Christian theology.  In so doing, the theology core curriculum supports the University’s goal of helping students to acquire a broad and integrated vision of life and to gain awareness of the depth, meaning, and value of that vision.

Theology Core Curriculum

The theology core curriculum consists of two courses, the first of which you must select from the following foundational courses:

  • THE 109 Introduction to Theology
  • THE 110 Introduction to the Bible
  • THE 209 In Pursuit of Wholeness: Salvation in Everyday Life
  • THE 221 Christian Anthropology
  • THE 222 Faith Alive: Catholic Belief and Practice

For your second theology core course, you may select from any other theology course. You may also choose to satisfy your liberal arts core ethics requirement by way of one of the Theology Department’s courses in ethics.

Theology Core Learning Outcomes

  • Acquire a basic working knowledge of the Bible
