The Religious and Theological Studies program from Salve Regina University offers students a deep intellectual engagement with the Christian religious tradition, including our Catholic heritage, as well as a rich, comparative approach to the great religions of the world.


The Religious and Theological Studies program at Salve Regina University offers four optional areas of focus - Christian theology, scripture, ethics and world religions - allowing them to choose a path of study that best meets their needs and captures their interests.

Our Program

Beyond the classroom, we sponsor activities that complement our curriculum - from bringing to the University guest speakers who explore the relevant religious issues of the day to sponsoring study abroad courses in destinations such as Belize, Turkey and Israel.

Our graduates possess a strong liberal arts foundation for postgraduate work, including the study of religion, history or law, as well as careers in social services, education, business and church-related contexts.

Life After Salve

A degree in religious and theological studies provides students with fascinating, versatile and challenging coursework and gives them the opportunity to read, discuss and write about serious issues. Students explore the most important aspects of human life, sharpening their liberal arts skills in the process.

Both for-profit and nonprofit companies seek employees who are smart, interesting and quick learners. While employees can be taught necessary technical skills, employers want them to have real exposure to ideas, different worldviews and the ability to speak, read and write effectively. This is precisely what the religious and theological studies degree offers.
