Theology is an attempt to come to an intellectually honest understanding of one's faith relationship with God. At Ohio Dominican University theology is done from within the context of the Roman Catholic tradition. The degree programs help to prepare students for pastoral or youth ministry, religious education in parishes and diocesan schools, and/or graduate studies in theology.
