Ministry


Students in the bachelor of arts in ministry program may choose between concentrations in pastoral ministry and youth ministry. Students take a central core of courses in Scripture (Old and New Testaments), dogmatic theology, moral theology, and pastoral ministry. Both ministry majors allow the student professional options in related endeavors such as pastoral assistants, hospital chaplains, and various roles in pastoral administration as well as in associated fields of interest, such as counseling, education, and social work.

The concentration in youth ministry also allows the students career options as youth ministers, campus ministers, and teachers of adolescent evangelization and catechesis, as well as in associated fields of interest such as adolescent recreational and residential administration.

Students complete the programs in a coordinated study with the School of Continuing Education and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence.
