Inspired by Jesuit tradition, members of the Service and Faith LC will strive to become Persons for Others through intellectual inquiry and engaging in the broader community.

THEO100 is an introduction to reflection on and analysis of the Christian theological tradition. Students will understand how Christian theology interprets the human situation from the perspective of faith, various challenges to theology in the contemporary world, and will focus on one or more current theological issues. The class will also visit the worship and service activities of a range of local congregations. CORE Theological and Religious Studies Tier I
