Message From the Dean of the Athenaeum of Ohio
As the Dean of the Athenaeum of Ohio and as the Special Studies Dean, I invite you to grow in wisdom by enrolling in our classes and programs taught by our outstanding seminary faculty.
The motto of the Athenaeum is to grow in wisdom, age and grace - Proficere sapientia aetate et gratia - which has inspired thousands of our students and alumni to deepen their faith and better serve the Lord through their vocations.
Whether you are interested in earning a master's degree or taking classes for spiritual enrichment, the Athenaeum is here to help you. We offer degreed and non-degreed programs through our Special Studies Division and Lay Pastoral Ministry Program.
The Special Studies Division of the Athenaeum provides a wide variety of educational programs, including three master's degree programs - in Biblical Studies, Catholic Studies and Theology. You may audit an individual class or take a course without being enrolled in a degree program.
The Lay Pastoral Ministry Program also provides excellent educational programs and includes field education and mentoring opportunities. Certificate courses are available at satellite campus locations throughout the Archdiocese.
