Great Reasons to Attend
The Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology (DSPT) gives students the opportunities for collaboration between lay and religious, with other Christian denominations, and with other religious traditions.
Opportunities abound for students to explore varying faith traditions, debate principles, and seek the truth where it exists as they study alongside students of the Graduate Theological Union (GTU). Within the GTU there are Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim, Unitarian, Buddhist, and non-religious students and faculty.
The DSPT faculty includes lay people as well as members of the Dominican, Capuchin Franciscan, Salesian, Holy Cross, Oratorian, and Carmelite orders.
DSPT classrooms are a mix between lay students and members of religious orders. In one class there might be a student pursuing a career in youth ministry, one studying to enhance their ability to bring their faith to their practice of medicine, one preparing to go on for his or her Ph.D., and another who is a brother in the Dominican order who is preparing for the priesthood. Each student brings a new perspective to the discussion and that produces a deeper learning that is more equipped to tackle contemporary issues.
