About

The Master of Arts in Historical and Systematic Theology  at Catholic University of America is the basic graduate degree in general Roman Catholic theology.

Overview

The mission of The Catholic University of America is to render service in the United States as an intellectual center of the highest quality where every dimension of truth, natural and revealed, can be examined with competent expertise. As a central part of this mission, the School of Theology and Religious Studies sets itself two goals: to promote excellence in teaching, research, and publication in the area of theology and religious studies; and to provide the professional training of lay and clerical leaders who will serve the Roman Catholic community in the United States and throughout the world.

In pursuit of these goals, the school places emphasis on an interdisciplinary approach and collaboration with other schools of the university, on the ecumenical and interreligious dimensions of all theological studies, on the exploration of relations between religion and culture, and on the promotion of informed efforts to work for justice and peace both within the Church and in the world in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
