With an internationally recognized faculty, whose research specialties encompass both ancient and modern Christianity, Eastern and Western, as well as Judaic-Studies and Christian-Muslim dialogue, the MA Theology Program at the University of Scranton—the only one of its kind in the region—offers an intellectually rigorous environment, faithful to its Catholic context and challenged by the Jesuit pursuit of the common good.
Our mission is to teach and inquire into the intellectual, spiritual and moral riches of the Christian tradition.
We mean to acquaint students with Christianity’s long and disciplined reflection on the deeply human questions about the quest for God, wisdom and human fulfillment. While accenting the Catholic tradition, our inquiry into these questions includes other Christians and religious traditions, including Judaism and Islam.
Where are they now?
Graduates within the last year alone have obtained teaching and campus ministry positions in places such as Seton Hall Prep (NJ) and St. Joseph’s Prep (PA). Graduates from years past have also obtained similar positions and/or placement in PhD programs or hospital chaplaincies.
Opportunities for Students
The program offers faculty-led, short-term study abroad courses to, so far, the Holy Land, Uganda, the Balkans, and Germany.
