Program description

Bachelor of Theology

Are you interested in the meaning of life? Do you want to explore the big questions of life, the universe and everything in a critical and sustained way? In the Bachelor of Theology you explore the richness of the Christian tradition to address life's big questions. Theology is an integral part of the Catholic intellectual tradition, as faith seeks a critical understanding of its beliefs and values, and addresses the questions posed by the contemporary world. Drawing on the intellectual resources of Christianity you will explore time honored human questions Is there a God? What can we know of God? What happens when we die? How can I live an authentic life? and bring them into conversation with cutting edge questions and concerns Is religion compatible with science? Why Christianity and not another religion? Does faith make me a better person? At ACU, theology shares with philosophy and related disciplines, a common vision and a collaborative concern for truth, justice, ethical values and the dignity of the human person.
