About

The Undergraduate Program in Theology at Boston College is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for reasoned reflection on their own values, faith, and tradition as well as on the religious forces that shape our society and world. A broad liberal arts discipline, theology encourages and guides inquiries into life's most meaningful issues.

Overview

The major in Theology from Boston College  has proved to be excellent preparation for careers and professions requiring careful reasoning, close reading, clarity in written expression, the ability to make ethical decisions, and a broad understanding of cultures. It provides a solid background for graduate study in the humanities and for such professional schools as medicine, business, and law. 

Career

For those wishing to pursue a career in academic Theology, ministry, or religious education increasingly, these are lay persons rather than seminarians and religious theology, of course, is still a prerequisite. 

Many students now also elect Theology as a second major or as minor to balance and broaden their education and to provide perspective on other disciplines in the natural or social sciences and the humanities.
