A generalist ministerial degree designed for people with rich experience in ministry who wish to wed that experience with strong theoretical work. Grounded in the principles of practical theology, the degree respects the experience of the participants and challenges them to consider their experience within a variety of systematic frameworks. The goal is to enable experienced ministers to train other leaders for ministry. To achieve its ends, the program employs both seminar work and peer learning experiences. 

At Catholic Theological Union, students engage in a transforming, intercultural academic experience as they prepare to become leaders for the local and global Church, ready to witness to the good news of Jesus Christ.
