Pursue a Master of Arts in Theology with a concentration in Liturgy and follow in the footsteps of Virgil Michel, OSB, and Godfrey Diekmann, OSB, two Benedictines of Saint John's whose work in liturgy continues to resonate today. Saint John's occupies a prominent place in the history of liturgical reform, a legacy which is carried forward through The Liturgical Press and the PrayTell blog. Housed at Saint John’s are also the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library – home of the world’s largest collection of manuscript images - and The Saint John’s Bible.
The Master of Arts in Theology prepares students to serve the Church in many ways, including teaching, particular work in religious communities, specific ministries, and further theological study. 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 keeps academic study grounded in the common life of faith.
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. Get more information about the M.A. in Theology program using the links below.
