The Theology major at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota is recommended for students with a general interest in theology and/or those intending to pursue graduate study, or a career teaching religion in a Catholic high school.


Along with core Theology courses at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota found in the integrated general education program, students who choose to major or minor in theology engage in advanced studies that enable them to further understand the complexity and integrity of the Catholic Christian faith, as well as its dialogues with other faith traditions.

Courses in the major area address the development of doctrine, Church history, the moral life, prayer and worship, justice and peace. Study abroad to better understand the global nature of the Christian faith is encouraged. Students who choose to complete the Theology major with a concentration in Pastoral and Youth Ministry will have the opportunity to do extended internship work in the field of their choice, on campus or abroad. The major is structured to facilitate most students who desire to double major and complete their degree in four years.
