The Master of Theological Studies (MTS) program began fall 2012. We offer a rigorous and integrated approach to theological study, emphasizing the breadth of the Christian tradition and a variety of theological specialties including biblical studies, historical and systematic theology, ethics, and comparative theology. Loyola's theology faculty is internationally recognized for its scholarly excellence and includes both Catholic and non-Catholic Christians. Together we nurture a collegial atmosphere which is the foundation for a community in which rigorous and lively debate and intellectual generosity flourish.
The post-baccalaureate Certificate in Theology and Ministry is new for the 2014-2015 academic year. It is designed for people who wish to further their academic theological education for the sake of a ministerial vocation, such as ordained ministry or chaplaincy.
