Theology & Religious Studies

The Theology and Religious Studies department is

  • Social Justice Oriented, addressing the experiences and realities of oppressed peoples and the integral relationship between religion and social justice in local and global contexts;
  • Intellectual, contributing to students' intellectual growth by helping them develop the skills and knowledge to engage critically and effectively with the multi-religious dimensions of human life; 
  • Catholic and Jesuit, emphasizing an in-depth study of the Catholic tradition in dialogue with other religious and secular perspectives, in keeping with the Jesuit, Catholic commitment of Seattle University; and 
  • Ecumenical and Interreligious, exploring the internal diversity within Christianity and other religious traditions. 

Donations to the Theology and Religious Studies Department fund will be used to help students achieve academic excellence, such as providing students with small grants to cover some expenses they might have when completing projects and research or attending conferences to present their work. Donations can also be made to the Ann O'Hara Graff Lecture Series.
