Academics

Borromeo Seminary, in conjunction with John Carroll University, offers an integrated liberal arts curriculum that exposes students to the wealth of human learning and  prepares them for graduate study in theology.

Seminarians are registered at the university as full-time students.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays they take an integrated sequence in philosophy and theology at the seminary.  On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, they pursue the study of the arts, sciences, and humanities at the university.  Upon graduation, they receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from John Carroll University.

Through these studies, the Borromeo student seeks human and divine wisdom. As Pope John Paul II wrote, “Intellectual formation … is a fundamental demand of man’s intelligence by which he ‘participates in the light of God’s mind’ and seeks to acquire a wisdom which in turn opens to and is directed towards knowing and adhering to God.”
