Aquinas Institute believes in a small community where teachers, laypersons and friars can learn side-by-side, using discussion and collaboration as tools to best find the truth.
Aquinas Institute has launched the Center for Community Engagement and Evangelization as well as the New Frontiers in Preaching program with grant money provided by Lilly Endowment, Inc. These programs allow Aquinas to not only teach graduate students, but to provide lifelong learning opportunities as well.
Aquinas alumni have served as hospital chaplains, non-profit executives, youth ministers, theology teachers, academic administrators, college professors, social justice advocates, and more.
Aquinas Institute of Theology has been educating graduate students in the discipline of theology for almost 100 years.
Graduate degree programs at Aquinas include a Master of Arts in Theology, Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies, and a Master of Divinity, the country's only Doctor of Ministry in Preaching, and the only Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies - Catechesis of the Good Shepherd degree of its kind.
Available for full-time students in any of the "Core Three" programs: MA in Theology, MA in Pastoral Studies, or Master of Divinity.
Aquinas Institute is designated as the Center for Institutional Studies by the Order of Preachers and is sponsored by the Dominican Central Province of St. Albert the Great in partnership with Dominican Southern Province of St. Martin de Porres.
