The Theology curriculum at CM is grounded in the longstanding Catholic intellectual tradition, while at the same time seeking relevance in today’s complex and diverse world. Toward that end, students at CM regularly bring their experiences and the events of our time into dialogue with scripture and Catholic tradition.
A deliberate outcome of that conversation is to inspire students to discern how their unique gifts and talents are given by a loving God to meet the world’s great needs. This is accomplished through intentional and robust coordination with spiritual formation provided by CM’s Campus Ministry program, as well as the personal formation provided by CM’s college counseling and guidance program. The dynamic, involved, and faith-filled teachers within the department also serve as models of a life lived in discipleship to Jesus. The Theology Department, inspired by the witness of Blessed Edmund Rice, invites students to pursue excellence in theological study; embrace and embody the worldview, values, and actions of Jesus Christ; and lead lives of reflective service to others---especially those marginalized by poverty and injustice.
