The Theology program at the Hellenic College Holy Cross is particularly designed for those who desire to enhance a scholarly dimension in their priestly or ministerial vocations. It is especially appropriate for those preparing to teach, those interested in furthering their theological knowledge and spiritual life, or those intending to pursue doctoral work.


The Master of Theology program from the Hellenic College Holy Cross is research-oriented and includes a thesis component. Students concentrate on a chosen theological discipline. Candidates research one aspect of theology while demonstrating competence in one ancient and one modern language.

ThM graduates go on to pursue studies at the doctoral level, to teach, or to apply their knowledge to enhance their ministries. Approaches to theological research include Biblical, Systematic, Historical and Practical.

Learning Objectives

  • Knowledge of the area of concentration
