We invite you to see our many course offerings, how they reflect
the rich diversity of St. John's students (whether Catholic,
Protestant, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, or Muslim) and the many
dimensions of theological and religious interest. Most of them are
Catholic, fulfilling the mission statement of the university
-Catholic, Vincentian, and Metropolitan. Our courses reflect
a Catholic identity, but do so in keeping with St. Vincent's
message of loving concern for the poor and marginalized of society.
Not only do they reflect a Christian identity, they do so with
respect to the concrete experience of life in America's largest
city. They also reflect an appreciation of other religious
traditions, but do so with respect to an appreciation of an
international global perspective.
We also invite you to see how the faculty represents the
diversity of St. John's. They are men and women, lay and religious,
Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, personally and professionally
committed to the university's mission. They are scholars and
teachers, expressing that commitment in a search for systematic
appreciation of theological and religious issues. Their respective
areas of expertise are expressed in their research, publication and
