About the College Theology Society

College Theology Society Board Members

The College Theology Society is a professional association of college and university professors. Founded in 1954 as a Roman Catholic organization of lay and religious teachers of undergraduate theology, the CTS today has a membership of over 500 college and university professors throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. While maintaining its roots in the Roman Catholic tradition, the Society is increasingly ecumenical in its membership and concerns.

CTS provides opportunities to:

  • keep abreast of current activities in the academic study of religion,
  • investigate the relationship of theology/religious studies to other academic disciplines and the place of religion in the total college curriculum,
  • discuss and evaluate ways of teaching theology/religious studies effectively,
  • promote the development of programs which are genuinely intellectual, value oriented, and realistically designed to meet students' needs.
