Curricular Divisions

Division of Theology and Philosophy


Theology and philosophy are the integrating force of the curriculum, offering an insight into the relationship between faith and reason. They direct the student toward a clearer knowledge of the Catholic faith and a greater appreciation of its intelligibility. As noted below, our Division Goals are consistent with our Institutional Goals (IG). This cohesiveness ensures that this Division supports the mission of Assumption College.

  • Develop the ability to think critically about philosophical and theological topics and to express that thinking clearly in written and oral communication (IG 1, 2)


  • Expand research, professional and technological skills necessary for pursuing further educational goals and future ministries (IG 1, 2)


  • Discover the relationships between theology and philosophy, faith and reason (IG 1)


  • Deepen awareness of the impact of historical and cultural shifts on philosophical and theological development (IG 4, 5)


  • Explore the philosophical and theological roots of human relationships, mutual responsibilities and service (IG 3, 4, 5)


  • Identify the philosophical and theological foundations of the inalienable rights of all persons and apply them to current global social issues (IG 4, 5)


  • Examine and assess how an awareness of and respect for the viewpoints, cultures and customs of all people contribute to the world community and broaden our horizons by realizing our connectedness to all peoples (IG 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
