Distinctive Echo Courses

Department of Theology Summer Courses

Echo offers its apprentices and theology teachers the opportunity to study theology in a master’s degree program at the University of Notre Dame. Apprentices and theology teachers engage in coursework in biblical studies, history of Christianity, liturgical studies, moral theology, systematic theology, spirituality, and catechesis. Parish apprentices participate in pastoral courses, including family life ministry and ministry to young adults, and theology teachers engage in theological pedagogy courses.

Apprentices and theology teachers earn the majority of their credits during two summers on campus, with remaining coursework taken on-line during the academic year. In July of the third summer, apprentices and theology teachers return to campus for comprehensive examinations. The academic component of Echo is complemented by and integrated into the other areas of formation in Echo.
