Learn more about the Theological Studies program

Since 1995 the Diocesan Ministry Formation Program and Siena Heights University have received firm and unwavering support of both Bishop Carl Mengeling and Bishop Earl Boyea. Contracts have been renewed in 2000, 2005 and again in 2010 for another five-year cycle.

The Program in Theological Studies is an academic program consisting of 36 credit hours. Siena Heights University provides the 12 theology courses in theological studies required by the Diocese. The University provides the qualified adjunct faculty. These theology courses can also be used as a major for a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theological Studies.

By awarding academic credit for the theology courses, potential church ministers are assured of receiving a quality education that meets the standards of those institutions of higher education delivering academic credit-bearing courses. An important outcome of the theological studies is that persons in church leadership gain confidence, marketability and credibility in their ministerial and professional environment.
