Department of Theology & Religious Studies

Academic excellence. Engaging theology and culture. A strong tradition of learning with the mind and the heart.

We are an academic faculty within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences of Villanova University, a university with a Roman Catholic and Augustinian heritage. In our programs, we emphasize a broad understanding of the Christian theological tradition in light of the Second Vatican Council and questions raised by modern culture.
