At Canterbury, we believe in promoting the application of Christian principles through student engagement in the study of theology. Theology classes at Canterbury invite students to learn about the scriptures and traditions of world religions while challenging them to consider the meaning and purpose of life and the effect of behavior and action. The theology curriculum develops a deeper appreciation of religious tradition, an understanding of the origin and tenets of major world religions, a mindful awareness of how our self is formed, and a broader and more inclusive worldview through academic inquiry and direct experience. Students will reflect on the role of spirituality in their own lives, while also engaging in ethical issues and social justice.
