Course summary

Theology is one of the broadest and most comprehensive fields of study. Though it is sometimes assumed to be a discipline reserved for clergy; in reality, theology addresses questions that are ultimate of interest to everyone. Why do we exist? What is the good life, and how can we live it? Is there a God? And if there is a God, what is God like?

Theology asks the biggest human questions in order to better understand our every-day lives. It is unique as a discipline because it is a conversation about everything. And students in theology at UWTSD will have the opportunity to study everything – from history and philosophy to hermeneutical theory and sociology, to culture and ethics.
