1. A deeper knowledge of Catholic doctrine and practice. Dive into particular areas of Church teaching that interest you, and examine their scriptural and historical foundations. Engage your mind in the pursuit of wisdom through faith and reason under the instruction of top-tier, faithfully Catholic faculty.
2. Research and critical thinking skills. As an MA student, you will have multiple research papers that challenge you to dig deeper into specific theological topics and compare and evaluate the insights of different theologians.
3. Practical ways of growing closer to God. Your ultimate goal in life is not your career (though that’s still important), but getting to heaven! By studying theology at the graduate level, you’ll be learning more about God, the source of all love and joy!
