The Boston College School of Theology and Ministry is a comprehensive theological school. Students attend the STM from diverse backgrounds and with a variety of educational and vocational goals. STM offers programs designed to meet the growing needs of the international Church.
Whether you want to enrich your spiritual life through one of our many lectures, prepare for a vocation in ministry, or enter into an academically rigorous theological education, the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry has something to offer you.
The School of Theology and Ministry offers graduate students a number of degree-granting programs. The course of study you decide is tailored to your career aspirations. Our degree programs prepare students for ministries that are as diverse as the composition of the student body– Jesuits and other candidates approved for ordination studies, women and men for lay ecclesial ministries and for service rooted in faith, and scholars preparing for a career in academia.
The School of Theology and Ministry is committed to providing the opportunity for professional development and ongoing formation for today’s Church. Every person interested in exploring the important issues of the Church today can find a workshop, lecture, or course to meet his or her interest– whether professional or personal. Our programs are designed to fit into a variety of schedules, with day, evening, weekend, and online programs during the academic year, as well as one- or two-week courses held during the STM’s Summer Institute.
