The School of Theological Studies was founded in 1969 with the intention of educating the Religious and Laity. Through the years, we have conferred over 1,050 graduate degrees and hundreds of Undergraduate certificates. In addition, each year, the School serves hundreds of students with catechetical programs to teach and promulgate the Catholic faith. We offer two Degree programs: The Master of Arts in Theology and the Master of Arts in Philosophical Studies. We offer a one-of-a-kind Certificate in Pastoral Ministry to Black Catholics (MBC). We offer online Catechetical Institute courses for school teachers, catechists, and adults seeking to learn the Catholic faith.
