Harry John McDargh
Associate Professor, Theology
Office hours: Th 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon
Professor McDargh arrived at Boston College fresh from graduate study at Harvard University in the psychological study of religion 25 years ago and never left. Recognized in his field for his contributions to the study of childhood development and religious formation, the Capstone project understandably recruited his interest from its first year.
John and his partner live up the road at Newton Centre where their son Sasha—adopted seven years ago from Russia (now on the threshold of adolescence)—is giving them a late-life education in Super Mario, Jackie Chan movies, and being Newton soccer dads.
McDargh has been known to show up for Capstone classes accompanied by the family golden retriever, Murphy.
