Religious Studies Curriculum

The Religious Studies Department uses a variety of creative lessons to help our students realize and explore the action of God in our lives.

Theology Comes Alive
With the help of the most up-to-date technology, upper division students examine issues of spirituality and vocation using works of literature and experiences that allow them to practice responsibility with real life situations. Our courses on spirituality, vocations, and sexuality help students develop and form their character.

Religions of the World
World Religions shows students other ways to see God by highlighting the world’s great religions and gives students the chance to explore the variety of cultural experiences within these traditions.

Exploration of Scripture
Whether a student has never studied the Bible before or considers themselves experts, the freshmen curriculum allows students to better know the ancestry of faith (for both Judaism and Christianity) in the study of the patriarchs, prophets, and kings of the Old Testament. The second semester of study highlights the mission of Jesus and our call to be living witnesses of the Gospel.

Not Words, But Deeds

Following the path of the foundress of the Sisters of Presentation, Nano Nagle, the other required courses (The Church: Mission and Sacrament, Moral Theology, and Social Justice) examine the important role of how our act of praising and worshipping God should translate to the way we live our lives on a daily basis.
