Goals of the Academic Area
As an academic discipline, Christian Spirituality is interdisciplinary and embraces biblical, liturgical, historical-systematic, catechetics, and moral disciplines. Students may matriculate for a PhD in Spirituality, a Master of Arts in Spirituality, or a certificate in Carmelite Spirituality, Franciscan Spirituality, or Apostolic Spirituality.
As a pastoral discipline, Christian Spirituality also embraces the contemporary understandings of psychological, social, and political sciences. Students desiring a professional degree may matriculate for a Doctor of Ministry with a concentration in Adult Spiritual Formation. For further details see announcements for Doctor of Ministry Program.
