school of theology and ministry
Second-year M.A. and M.Ed. students enroll in Contextual Education, which provides the student with theological and ministerial opportunities beyond the classroom. Students work approximately ten hours per week during the fall and spring semesters in one of a wide variety of ministerial settings, and meet bi-weekly in small practicum groups to engage in theological reflection. STM graduates emerge with both an intellectual mastery of the spiritual and theological tradition of the Catholic faith and an ability to bring this tradition into rigorous dialogue with contemporary culture in their ministry.
