Critical reflection on the human experience

About the Program Certificate in US Hispanic/Latino(a) Theology

The Department offers a Certificate in Hispanic/Latino(a) Theology and Ministry as an opportunity for those who wish to acquire professional training in theology in light of the increasing number of Hispanic/Latino(a) Catholic congregations and to “reflect on the fundamental questions of human experience and study the responses to these questions proposed by the liberal arts and sciences [and] pursue continued spiritual, intellectual, physical, and professional growth and development.”

The Certificate program coheres with both the University mission and the mission of the Department to provide quality educational opportunities in the search for truth and the practice of justice through the Catholic and Dominican traditions of reasoned analysis and faith. The program is designed for personal enrichment and a greater understanding of the realities of Hispanic/Latino(a) Catholics.
