College of Theology


College of Theology

Purpose

The purpose of the College of Theology is to equip graduates of all faith traditions to seek entry as ministry practitioners through advanced practical theology and ministry studies in a variety of settings, including local churches, parachurch organizations, institutions, the community, and the marketplace. The College is non-denominational and rooted in the Christian tradition, and shares the University’s vision of contributing to human flourishing through educating graduates who care for the whole person. Drawing on the resources of the University, it offers practice-oriented education that prepares men and women to provide leadership in ministry and spiritual care.

Theological Position

South University is a private university and does not consider itself to be a faith-based institution. The University does seek to offer, however, a broad-based approach to learning that can and should offer religious and theological perspective and provide academically rigorous professional education for those who provide spiritual care in their faith communities and in public institutions. Accordingly, the College of Theology does not use a statement of faith or other religious test as a criterion of admissions for students or for hiring faculty and staff. Students from all religious traditions (and none) are welcome to enroll in the program. At the same time, the College considers the Nicene Creed to be the theological benchmark by which students, faculty and staff may better understand the perspective of the College and its programs.
