The path to earning a Theology degree at St. Ambrose leads students to a mature and critical appreciation for an engaged faith as they explore how ancient—and continually developing—conversations on scripture, tradition, reason, and human experience relate to our communities, both local and global.
In the Theology Department at SAU, we believe that, as Socrates said, the unexamined life is not worth living. We scrutinize our beliefs, how we come to hold them, and how they interface with a rapidly changing world.
This is a community within itself: students and professors share meals together, gather to discuss readings or topics, and attend lectures.
Students can major or minor in Theology, get a concentration in Youth Ministry, or double major. Theology courses also are part of several interdisciplinary minors.
Almost nothing gives you a better feel for the real Ambrose experience than being on campus, and we want to help schedule the type of visit that works best for you.
