Maybe you've already read it before, but at St. Ambrose, there's no such thing as a lecture hall. Our overall student-to-faculty ratio is 11:1, and as a Theology major there's a good chance it will be lower.
There's also a community within the program itself: sharing meals together, informal gatherings to discuss readings or topics, and attending lectures.
Your theology degree will work particularly well as a companion major. We have had students pair theology with engineering, communications, nursing, pre-OT, pre-physical therapy, and more.
In all of these cases, students find innovative ways to explore the theological and ethical compenents of their first major, such as the ethics involved in engineering decisions or the understanding of disability from a theological point of view.
"Studying Theology at SAU gave me the opportunity to look seriously at my understandings of the Church and the understandings of those around me. This led to recognizing how these perceptions affected the way I lived my life and practiced my upcoming profession. Questions challenged my world-views, professors encouraged and guided my own questioning, and experiences provided by SAU engaged my growing knowledge.
I believe that receiving a minor in Theology at SAU has better prepared me to be a more compassionate, understanding and well rounded professional in this dynamic and ever-changing world."
