Our faculty are scholars, mentors, and ministers, helping students transform into leaders of communities around the world. Through sincere interactions and enduring relationships, faculty members help students flourish academically, in ministerial work, and in exploring their own spiritual expression.
The nation’s largest theological faculty
Together with the Boston College Theology Department, our 73 faculty members comprise the largest theology faculty in the country.
The eminently respected New Testament scholar and beloved former dean of BC's School of Theology and Ministry has died after a courageous battle with glioblastoma.
Scholars Heather DuBois and Jaime Waters look at the theological and ministerial implications of suffering.
School of Theology and Ministry Associate Professor Catherine Mooney has lectured in the U.S. and in Rome.
Sister Nathalie Becquart, XMCJ, the first women to serve as under-secretary for the General Secretariat of the Synod, shares insights at Boston College.
The fellowship will make the STM experience accessible to all qualified students, regardless of financial need.
“We try to teach academic courses in ways that are eminently pastoral and applicable. Our practical courses are very academic. We try to teach them both in ways that nurture people's own spiritual growth. The academic, the pastoral, and the spiritual – letting all three suffuse each other and inform and color each other. We don't see these as a triangle. We see them as integrated. ”
Two book projects, Hope: Promise, Possibility, and Fulfillment and The Holy Spirit: Setting the World on Fire are notable examples of how STM faculty members collaborate and support one another academically. For these projects, the faculty selected a central theme, and then each contributor explored the issue from her or his theological area of expertise.
Students also form relationships with stellar faculty in the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences Theology Department, whose primary research areas include biblical studies, historical theology/history of Christianity, comparative theology, systematic theology, and theological ethics.
