Scholarships Available for Women in Practical Theology! (St. Thomas University, Miami)

An Exciting Way to a Theology Doctorate!
Practical theology at St. Thomas University is both a theological field and a way of doing theology. It begins with a practical concern that comes out of experience, engages that concern in dialogue with the religious tradition and the culture, and through that dialogue discerns wisdom that leads to transformative action. Our program is unique among Catholic universities in the United States, and is very much open to those from all Christian traditions, approaches, and convictions. 

Program Goals
The Ph.D. program aims to do the following:
·      Develop advanced competency in practical theology that appropriates biblical, historical, and contemporary sources.
·      Apply practical theological method and analytical skills in a manner that critically incorporates insights from philosophical, psychology, and social scientific theory and research.
·      Advance the work of practical theology within culture, society, religious formation, and the life of the faith community.
·      Cultivate practical theological skills critical for transformative leadership and advocacy within society, church, and the contemporary theological conversation.
·      Acquire skills necessary to research and teach practical theology at an advanced level.
Funding Available!
Precandidacy students may be offered a practical theology scholarship, a tuition-based scholarship awarded annually by the dean of the School of Theology and Ministry. Our funding is designed to encourage a mix of students – women and men, and people of all different cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
Seeking Women Applicants!!!
Applications from women are especially welcome and the doctoral program has prioritized recruitment and funding on that basis.
