The Department of Theology and Religious Studies is committed to a rigorous presentation of the methods and content of both the scholarly study of Christian Theology and the academic discipline of Religious Studies. We view these combined disciplines as an important component within the liberal arts curriculum of a Roman Catholic university in the Jesuit tradition. We therefore take seriously our charge to engage students in the serious and critical study of religious experience, practice, thought and inquiry, both historically and in the contemporary world.
These pages are intended to aid students in pursuing their coursework in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at Saint Joseph's, and as a resource for all those interested in the study of theology and religous studies more generally.
We particularly invite interested students to investigate the possibility of majoring or minoring in theology or religious studies.
