Why an M.A. in Theology at UST?

As Pope Benedict states, the mission of laity in the Church is primarily spiritual, intellectual, and evangelical. Laypeople are enjoined to lead people to the truth of Christ.  UST’s Master of Arts in Theology program prepares graduates to guide people to the truth, defend the faith, and deepen their own spirituality.
