Degree Overview

If you are already teaching religious education in a school setting, this master’s degree is ideal. Theology has always held a central place in the life and mission of the Church by nurturing communities of believers as they come to understand their faith and explain it to others. The Master of Arts (Theology) is a unique opportunity for students from various backgrounds to learn the fundamentals of theology.

From a personal point of view, theology may be seen as faith’s search for understanding, for a sense of who God is, who we are, and what we and our world can become in and through a relationship with God. The study of theology explores issues such as the nature of God, His revelation in Jesus Christ, the nature of personal identity and humanity, human origins and destiny, the Christian community and God’s presence with us now in the Holy Spirit. Catholic theology develops a rich understanding of how humans respond to Scripture and Tradition.

The Master of Arts (Theology) can be completed in two years of full-time study or as a part-time student. Assessment is by tutorial presentation, discussions, seminars and a research project. This program will particularly interest those already teaching religious education in schools but will also appeal to students from various backgrounds.#
