Why Should I Major in Theology?
Majoring in Theology prepares students to integrate their relationship with God into
their lives and professional goals. Academic coursework is suited to the needs of
contemporary students and engages them in philosophy, sacred scripture, Catholic traditions,
and morality. The program culminates in a research project and service practicum.
How Can I Become A Theology Teacher?
Study Theology with a concentration in Religious Education. UHC also offers a Theology
degree with a major concentration in Religious Education. This prepares students for
parish ministry and classroom teaching in elementary and high school. The program
combines studies of philosophy, theology, and education and also includes a research
project and student teaching practicum.
Why Should I Minor in Theology?
You can earn a minor in Theology while pursuing another major. A unique strength of
UHC is that for every major, you will have the opportunity to learn how your faith
is an essential part of doing it well. As a UHC student, you will take 2 Theology
courses as part of your core curriculum. But the motivated student can choose to take
theology courses as his/her free electives and earn a Minor in Theology at the same
