Aquinas Institute Of Theology


Impelled by the Catholic faith and the Dominican mission, Aquinas Institute of Theology educates men and women to teach, minister, and lead. At Aquinas Institute, your education extends far beyond our classrooms. Our mission is to create a community of scholars and a place of conversation. Not just a school of theology, you will find a credible, diverse faith community and academic village thriving here at Aquinas Institute.

Aquinas Institute of Theology offers various programs that strategically combine stimulating academic study, solid pastoral preparation, and practical field education with mentors in ministry and spiritual formation for lay students. As a result, our graduates are well prepared with excellent credentials to serve the Church's ineffective leadership.

The graduate certificate programs at Aquinas Institute offer students an opportunity to supplement their studies or give them a specific focus. Students acquire the expertise they need for targeted ministries in the Church through concentrated coursework and an accelerated format.

At Aquinas Institute, we deliberately create an academic environment and faith community that reflects the current leadership reality in our Church today. Our lay students can study alongside the Dominican friars in specific formation as vowed religious. Our Dominican student brothers can study alongside others from different backgrounds and walks of life. Our vision allows students to learn from each other in unique ways, teaching our lay students and Dominican brothers how to fulfil the mission of our Church as co-responsible leaders.
