  • We "do theology" in the Augustinian tradition and integrate contemporary thought, experience, and method in course work.
  • We advance the various disciplines of Systematic and Fundamental Theology, Biblical Studies, Historical Studies and Historical Theology, Christian Ethics, Christian Spirituality, and Lay Ministry.
