Educated in the Footsteps of Saint Dominic

“DSPT provides me with a systematic background in philosophy and theology that complements my previous medical training. Catholic faith and education are truly integrated.  One professor will point out the theological implications of a particular philosophy, while another will discuss the historical philosophical underpinnings behind a theological idea.  We examine the philosophical assumptions that underlie modern culture and discuss deeper truth that extends beyond the materialism so prevalent in modern society.  The small class sizes foster a close-knit community.  Both lay and religious students with diverse backgrounds including law, journalism, engineering, and music provide diverse viewpoints.  Fascinating class discussions blossom with practical, real-world applications.  My education here is building a foundation for me to proclaim the truth of the love of Christ and to engage individuals at a personal level through bioethics and the moral choices we make every day.

of human and Christian life, such as those concerned with basic moral principles (freedom, responsibility, intentionality, and the relation between who we are and what we do), as well as the fundamental principles of Christology: just who really is Jesus Christ in relation to God and to us.
