Welcome Back!

The faculty and staff of the Theology Department would like to welcome the incoming students and welcome back all of our returning students! We wish you a successful semester. If we can do anything to assist you, please do not hesitate to contact us. 


The Theology Department is please to present its objectives for undergraduate student achievement. All Theology majors will:

a) Communicate clearly and effectively in theological research papers and oral presentations
b) Think critically about information, historical/intellectual contexts, and arguments regarding theological issues
c) Integrate broad and diverse learning within Theology
d) Appreciate the Christian, Catholic, and Jesuit traditions in the context of historical, cultural, and spiritual concerns
e) Apply a reasoned approach to effective decision-making according to sound and coherent ethical principles.

Individuals interested in the many graduate Theology programs at Creighton are encouraged to consider applying to one of three scholarships: The Richard J. Hauser, SJ Scholarship; the Bishop John R. Sheets Scholarship; and the Ministry Tuition Remission Scholarship. For more information, please consult the graduate school information page.

NEW VIDEO: See a short web video created by Creighton professor of Theology John O'Keefe about the experience of Creighton students in the study abroad program in the Dominican Republic, Encuentro Dominicano (Dominican Encounter).  This brief film follows some of those students through a portion of their semester and portrays the values and goals of the program.
