About

The Theological Studies program of Loyola Marymount University provides students the opportunity to reflect on religious experience and fundamental theological and human questions, engage in historical analysis, Biblical exegesis, and interdisciplinary dialogue, and explore a particular religious tradition or dialogue between Christianity and other religious traditions.

Overview

What do Theological Studies Majors do?

Majors of the Theological Studies program of Loyola Marymount University investigate the broader area of religious experience. Areas of study include biblical, historical, systematic, liturgical and comparative theology; theological ethics, spirituality, and faith and culture; world religions and religious studies; and pastoral theology, with special emphasis on the Roman Catholic theological tradition. Individual courses may study classical theological questions, perform close readings of a seminal text (e.g., Augustine’s Confessions), confront contemporary moral problems and the diversity of theological and ethical perspectives, or address the cultural, religious, and intellectual histories of particular religious traditions. 

Theological Studies majors also delve into issues relating to theology and gender, race, ethnicity, and other aspects of diversity. Course offerings include: US Latino/a Theology; Women and Religion; World Religions in Los Angeles; and the African American Religious Experience. Majors take courses in various subdisciplines in theology, but the major is designed to maximize student autonomy in shaping his or her own course of study.
