EX CORDE ECCLESIAE — FROM THE HEART OF THE CHURCH

Ph.D. students at AMU. develop the habit and unified vision of theological wisdom according to the unerring magisterial teachings of the Church. Through the study of biblical, moral and systematic theology, our doctoral students become conversant in the Catholic theological tradition and lay the groundwork for teaching roles in Catholic or non-Catholic institutions of higher education.

Fast Fact:More than 90% of our doctoral graduates are teaching theology at the college, university or seminary level.

SKILLS YOU WILL GAIN

  1. A deeper knowledge of Catholic doctrine and practice. Dive into particular areas of Church teaching that interest you, and examine their scriptural and historical foundations. Engage your mind in the pursuit of wisdom through faith and reason.
  2. Research and critical thinking skills. Master a particular topic in theology by performing original research for your dissertation and successfully defending your findings to a panel.
  3. Practical ways of growing closer to God. Your ultimate goal in life is not your career (though that’s still important), but getting to heaven! By studying theology you’re learning more about God, the source of all love and joy!
