Systematic Theology
Theology has been described as “faith seeking understanding” (St Anselm of Canterbury). Systematic Theology studies the great mysteries of the Christian faith, leading us to an ever-deeper appreciation and understanding of the person of Christ.
Building on the solid foundation of Biblical Studies, Systematic Theology holds in creative tension a profound commitment to the Revelation of God made known to us in Christ, a deep sense of the living Tradition we have inherited, and an urgent commitment to proclaim the message of life to the world in which we live. In this way, we seek to understand our faith so that we can share this gift with others and contribute to the “building up of the Body of Christ” (cf., Ephesians 4:12).
At Catholic Theological College, students of systematic theology are invited to enter into an exciting journey of discovery as they study the great themes of Christian faith, including: Creation, Revelation, the Trinity, the Incarnation, the Church, the Sacraments, and Eschatology. Along the way, students acquire skills they need to continue the journey with confidence, long after their formal studies are completed.
