Merging Faith and Practice
At the Franciscan School of Theology, you will engage wholeheartedly in your faith journey and discover your unique role in caring for our world and the Catholic Church with rigorous master’s programs led by world-class scholars.
It all started with an inner need for faith seeking understanding, but I received much more than that. I got a whole community of support and new relationships between teachers, fellow students, and administrative staff. I got a profoundly important experience that will go with me not just to my next step but to every new step I take academically, professionally, and personally. Thank you FST
