Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology

Current Course Syllabi & Information

NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for Fall 2020, all DSPT’s programs are opening all-remote mode except for the MDiv program, in which a few courses will be in hybrid mode (with most of its courses being in all-remote mode). The modalities to be employed for each course listed here will be identified as soon as possible and before registration officially opens on August 17. Thank you for your patience.

As a service to students in helping to make choices in registration, draft versions of current course syllabi are posted on this page 1-2 weeks before the start of each semester. Faculty are free to - and often do - make changes to these syllabi before the first day of class. It is up to the student to ensure that you are using the most current version of the syllabus. Before purchasing any books for a course, ensure that you have the correct version of the syllabus. If you are unsure, please contact the professor. Refer to the DSPT Course Descriptions or the GTU Course Schedule for more information.
