Theology and Religious Studies
The program in Theology and Religious Studies at Rosemont College is designed to introduce students to the study of Catholicism and the religious traditions of the world, provoking deep reflection upon what it means to be human from the perspective of faith. Courses offer a dynamic blend of historical exploration, cultural understanding, theological and moral reasoning, and critical engagement with spiritual experience.
The call of the Second Vatican Council for a Church of dialogue, social justice, and renewed spiritual vitality is at the heart of the mission of the department. Students are invited to explore their own sense of spirituality and purpose in the world alongside the wisdom resources of the Catholic Church and its ecumenical and interreligious neighbors.
The department prepares students for career paths that include but are not limited to: pastoral ministry and counseling, secondary education, non-profit advocacy, international relations, and journalism. Double majors in all areas are encouraged, including, but not limited to: psychology, sociology, and communications.
