Students who pursue a Master of Arts in Theology with a concentration in Systematic Theology at Saint John’s take courses which examine the sacred texts of Christianity and explore the development of doctrine over the course of history in relation to ethics, philosophy and science.
The program prepares students to serve the Church in many ways, including teaching, particular work in religious communities, specific ministries, and further theological study. Also housed at Saint John’s are the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library – home of the world’s largest collection of manuscript images - and The Saint John’s Bible.
The M.A. in Theology program is also complemented by the other academic and ministerial degree programs, ensuring that study is always grounded in the rich conversation of a diverse community seeking God.
Theological study has long been valued in the Benedictine tradition as a central element of the search for God. At Saint John’s, the monastic rhythm of prayer and work also keeps academic study grounded in the common life of faith.
