College Theology SocietyServing Church and Academy Since 1954

We pray and share fellowship together. Most of us teach. Some of us even teach together. Many of us write and edit. We often collaborate. All of us learn, together and apart, about God, the Church, and each other.

The College Theology Society was founded in 1954, inspired by a daring idea: college students deserve the very best in theological education. The idea translated into a professional society in which women and men, lay and religious, found common cause in their love of theology, both as scholars and teachers. 

The fruits of the founders' labors are evident in the Society today where ongoing explorations of theological and religious questions occur in an atmosphere of inclusive hospitality and where the idea of teaching theology to college students remains a daring one.

All are welcome. Would you consider joining us?
