As the College’s mission statement highlights, programs offered are designed to prepare graduates who continually think rigorously in order to act rightly and serve humanity better.
St. Mark’s offers programs that are oriented primarily towards ministerial leadership: Pastoral Studies, Pastoral Ministry for the Permanent Diaconate, Catholic Educational Leadership, Religious Education, and Theological Studies.
The programs in Pastoral Studies, Pastoral Ministry for the Permanent Diaconate, Catholic Educational Leadership, and Religious Education all begin with a focus on the Catholic theological heritage, offering core courses in Foundations of Theology, Christology and Trinity, Christian Morality, Scripture, and Liturgy and Sacraments. The programs also focus on leadership within the different programs through the concentration courses. Leadership is based on professional expertise. The aim of the capstone course is to blend the theological with the professional.
Work in the fields of Education, in Social Services, in Hospitals and Health Care and various other forms of Chaplaincy are among the most obvious associated with the broadly evangelical mission of the Church, and are foundational to much of the social, educational and medical infrastructure of our province and the nation.
St. Mark’s College offers graduate credentials in Theological Studies, Religious Education, Pastoral Studies, and Catholic Educational Leadership.
