  • Develop responsible ethical agents;
  • Train critical thinkers;
  • Provide students with opportunities for spiritual growth;
  • Expose students to the history of philosophical thought and belief systems of the great world religions;
  • Show students how various philosophical and theological views apply to daily life experiences;

  • Provide students and opportunity to earn a minor in Religious Studies;
  • Offer students a Pre-Theological Program; and
  • Council students interested in the ordained ministry.
