The Theology Department embodies the mission of the Church and integrates the Adrian Dominican mission and vision for the education of young women. The Dominican charism and its pursuit of truth, justice, and peace provide the framework for learning and Christian practice. Courses offer opportunities for students both to understand and apply their faith. Students explore Catholic beliefs, scripture, church history, sacraments, personal and social ethics, comparative religions, spirituality, and philosophy. Women’s spiritual, intellectual, and emotional development and the contributions of women in religion and society permeate the Theology curriculum.
