Other important areas of teaching are philosophy, science and religion, bioethics, social justice, scripture, spirituality, contemporary world views, as well as sexuality and marriage. In total, thirty-nine courses in Christian theology and fourteen courses in philosophy are listed for credit in the Faculty of Arts.

How can I register?

You can register through Beartracks, like any other U of A course!

I'm not a current University of Alberta student. Can I still take a course at St. Joe's?

Yes. You will first need to apply to the UofA as an Open Studies student before the noted deadline. Once enrolled, simply log on to Beartracks and enroll in your chosen course(s).
