Focusing on a broad liberal arts discipline, the undergraduate Program in Theology at Boston College encourages and guides inquiries into life's most meaningful issues.


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.

The Theology department boasts a large, internationally known faculty with expertise in areas as diverse as biblical studies, church history, systematic theology, theological ethics, pastoral psychology and comparative theology.


  • The major in theology 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.
  • 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.
