Welcome to the St Mary’s University Institute of Theology and Liberal Arts

The Institute of Theology and Liberal Arts welcomes students of all faiths and none. We study theology and religion in service of the common good of society and the Church. As Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman said, ‘Truth is wrought out by many minds working together freely’.

You can find out about our undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes and take a look at our staff profiles. Our blog gives you an idea of what our staff and students are working on, and you can also follow us on Instagram and Twitter. Please sign up for our mailing list here, to keep abreast of our activities, and do drop us a line at if you have anything we can help you with.
