Theology Department Mission Statement

The Theology Department at Marian views learning as a process which integrates the development of the intellectual, emotional and spiritual dimensions of life. The curriculum is designed to implement the practices and principles of the Catholic Faith in a diverse and challenging environment. The principles and practices of the Catholic faith are explained in the context of moral decision-making, Church history, social justice issues and an exploration of comparative religions.
