Explore Theology at Immaculata University

What does faith mean to you? You may be surprised by the theological questions and answers you explore in your classes.

The perfect way of explaining Immaculata’s theology major is to use St. Anselm’s definition of theology: faith seeking understanding.

As a theology major or minor, the program will enable you to share and explain the substance of Christian belief in personal, religious, or professional settings. It will also prepare you to engage in critical reflection about contemporary threats to human dignity and to envision ways of transforming our world in keeping with values and commitments that are coherent with a Christian theological vision. Whether you choose to major in theology for professional or personal reasons, you can concentrate your studies within the areas of Scripture; systematic theology; spirituality; moral theology; and theology and culture.

"Immaculata University's Theology program truly expresses St. Anselm's definition of theology, 'faith seeking understanding,' as it prepared me to engage in critical analyses, dialogue and reflections regarding the past and present. IU's theology program is operated by a team of expert faculty, and each professor is eager to know you and to provide time for you outside of the classroom. One professor encouraged me to continue my education in theology during a personalized check-up meeting in her office. Another professor told me about Villanova University's graduate theology programs when I asked for her counsel on graduate school. All throughout the application process, the theology faculty supported me in whatever I needed. Because of the IU theology program's dedication to nourishing both the mind and soul, I was well-equipped to start the M.A. in Theology program at Villanova!"

If you meet the requirements for membership, you may participate in Immaculata’s local chapter of Theta Alpha Kappa (TAK), a national honor society for students of theology and religious studies.

As a student at Immaculata University, you will have ample opportunity to engage in social justice initiatives and volunteer programs that have been the cornerstone of Immaculata’s existence since the doors opened.

Majoring in theology can prepare you for a variety of professional paths. Some graduates pursue teaching careers in Catholic schools or engage in religious ministry. Others pursue graduate work in theology or a related academic field. Still others pursue work as directors of religious education, campus ministers, coordinators of youth ministry, or pastoral administrators or associates.

Some students choose theology as a supplementary major, because theology’s focus on the central questions of human existence complements and extends their commitment to their first major in science, psychology, business, or some other field. Professional schools increasingly appreciate how such a balanced preparation enhances a candidate’s profile.
