Our students participate in a welcoming learning community, pray the graces of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, and and benefit from being a part of a Jesuit and Catholic university with a national reputation, including an award-winning library.

Our faculty are grounded theologically, committed to teaching excellence, and contribute to research in the field. In particular, their teaching is informed by best practices and their own research in educational technology and social media for ministry. More information

Students integrate their knowledge of the Catholic faith with their own ministry. They develop ministerial proficiency by combining in-depth study of the Christian theological tradition with an appreciative and critical understanding of the contexts in which they minister. These include the sociocultural context of their ministry, the personal context of participants’ own faith development and spirituality, and the institutional context and organizational dynamics of the ministry sites in which they work.

The Loyola Institute for Ministry Extension (LIMEX) Onsite offers the Certificate in Pastoral Studies and the Certificate in Religious Education. They are both 36 credit, continuing education certificate programs For more information click here
