Department of Theology

Theology Mission Statement

In the Catholic and historically black tradition of Xavier University of Louisiana, the mission of the department of theology is to provide students with an understanding of the discourse on the human experience of God by means to an historical critical approach.

To fulfill this mission, the department offers a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Theology that will prepare the student for graduate study in theology, religion, philosophy, the social sciences, history, the humanities, the arts, professional schools, and careers in human services.

Students completing the B.A. in theology will know and understand the methods used in the study of theology and religion, and will also demonstrate a working knowledge and understanding of the theories used in the study of religion.
