Program overview

The MA in Theological Studies explores the relationship between religious experience and human society. With the Church operating in an increasingly pluralistic world, Christianity’s role is in constant evolution. Our researchers approach the history of theology with respect while maintaining an eye on the future. As part of the humanities, our program provides an interdisciplinary environment for advanced research by using methodologies present in philosophy, history and languages. Our student body is composed of individuals from a variety of religious and non-religious backgrounds who are interested in questions of faith and spirituality. You’ll join a vibrant community of researchers and faculty members who will encourage you to go beyond established disciplinary boundaries as you examine the roles of theology and belief in a secular era.
