Department of Theology

Undergraduate Studies

Guided by the Jesuit commitment to serve faith and promote justice, our undergraduate program provides you with the foundational skills to interpret the Christian tradition and to engage in the ethical analysis of contemporary issues, while also giving you the flexibility to develop your own spiritual or religious interests.

-Dr. William Madges, Chair of the Department of Theology

In theology courses at Xavier, we make it a priority for students to find their voice, use it, and encourage others to do the same as they work for justice and peace in our world. Listen to Samantha Mossing, a Theology and English double major (Class of 2022), share what she learned during her time in El Salvador as part of her course, THEO 422 - Solidarity: Possibilities and Limits, in spring 2020.

Not sure what to expect from THEO 111? A few first year students talk about their experience, how it compared to their expectations, and how it has been a meaningful way for them to grow as people of compassion and critical thinking.
