Liturgy Minor Program

Liturgy is of supreme importance for Christian faith, as the Church teaches that “the liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the font from which all her power flows” (Vatican II, SC 10). It therefore is an ideal complement to a major in Theology, Theological Studies, or Catholic Studies.

The Liturgy minor is designed to train students deeply in the theology and practice of the Church’s rituals and sacraments, and is well-suited for those desiring employment in parishes as liturgists and musicians as well as those exploring vocations to the priesthood or religious life.

 

Minor in Liturgy:

Minimum of 18 credits. Students must take at least six (6) courses in Theology, four (4) courses of which must be in liturgical theology and sacraments (THE 221, 323, 326, 332, and 370).

Even as one of the most affordable private universities in the nation, the University of Mary does offer a variety of scholarships. In fact, 99% of main campus undergraduate students receive some form of scholarship! 

Some scholarships are available for specific academic programs, such as nursing, while other scholarships are available for certain student populations, such as military and veteran students

We strongly encourage you to contact your personal admissions representative to discover all of the options that might be available to you. In many cases, a program specific scholarship is just one component of a complete financial aid package. 

Our admissions professionals will work together with our Office of Financial Assistance to ensure that you get the best financial aid package possible to finance your education. 

Acceptance at the University of Mary does not automatically qualify you to pursue a program in one of the academic programs of study. Application requirements are specific to each major or academic program.

We recommend consulting your advisor for details. Applications are reviewed by the faculty members of the program. You will be notified that you have been admitted, admitted provisionally, or denied admission to the program.
