What will I learn?

Framed by the Catholic intellectual tradition, this degree will introduce you to the richness and breadth of theological scholarship. By choosing theology, you will explore knowledge, identity and value, and uncover the meaning and significance of faith. You can pursue an in-depth program of study in Biblical studies, systematic theology, ministry, liturgy, ancient languages, biblical studies, and philosophy – with the flexibility to choose units from other disciplines, such as arts and social sciences.

Global experience is encouraged as part of your learning, with study abroad opportunities available at our Rome Campus, with one of our partner institutions in Europe or the United States, or in Israel with a study tour.

Graduate with a wide range of adaptable skills, including an enhanced capacity to analyse, critically reflect, evaluate, and bring ethical perspectives to life and work. You will also build your communication skills, grow your capacity to evaluate and discriminate between multiple viewpoints, and develop and articulate compelling arguments (both orally and in writing).

Professional experience

You will be required to complete a minimum of 70 hours of Community Engagement through the Christian Community Engagement unit.
