School of Theological Studies

Education for the Laity





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.  The degree program we offer is The Master of Arts in Theology.  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.
