school of theology and ministry
Having trouble deciding which program is best for you? Discern your program of study by learning about the strengths and opportunities each program provides.
The STM offers graduate students a number of degree-granting programs. Our degree programs prepare students for ministries that are as diverse as the composition of our 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 careers in academia.
The STM 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.
