Earn a Graduate Degree in Theology

We are a Catholic, online graduate program with the mission of preparing students for a life of teaching and learning through immersion in Catholic theology.

Students explore Catholic theology online, and on campus, and engage with instructors and one another in order to prepare themselves to serve the Church as the next generation of catechetical leaders and scholars.

About Our Faculty

Masters in Theological Studies Career Paths

The MTS program prepares students to teach in Catholic high schools, apply to hospital chaplaincy programs, or work in parishes or diocesan offices. It also prepares lay people to teach classes in Parish Schools of Religion (PSR), teach or direct the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and participate in other parochial ministries. Or, it can be pursued simply as a means of deepening a person's understanding of their faith.

Master in Arts in Theology Career Paths

The Master in Arts (M.A.) in theology degree prepares students for all of the same opportunities as the MTS. The more rigorous standards of the MA degree track also prepare students to enter Ph.D. programs. Possible careers include many areas in theological instruction.

Program Outcomes


"I've long been one to want to get a thorough background in Catholic theology. The Diocese offered me an incredible scholarship, and it has lived up to my expectations and exceeded them. It's been an incredible experience. I'm going to continue to catechize and continue to teach as many students as I can and reach out to those who don't know Christ and bring them closer to Him, I pray. "


"What I enjoyed most about the Masters in Theology program was the passionate professors who know how to communicate God’s truths to any type of learner."


"The threaded discussions provided many opportunities to explore, discuss and sometimes debate the theological perspectives of our classmates, and the papers I wrote provided opportunities to delve into areas of interest that I had not previously explored in any depth."
