About the Neuhoff School of Ministry
The Neuhoff School of Ministry offers practice-oriented programs of theological studies and pastoral ministry including degrees, certificates, conferences, ongoing seminars, lectures, and continuing education. The master’s degree and graduate certificate in pastoral ministry are designed to equip those who wish to serve in parishes, dioceses or other ministerial settings with in-depth theological knowledge and effective pastoral skills.
This graduate program offers several concentrations, each with a unique curriculum. With the health care ministry concentration, you can prepare for ministry in health care facilities through a combination of theology and pastoral ministry courses with onsite Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) at accredited CPE programs in regional hospitals like Harris Medical Center in Fort Worth or Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. This program contributes to the student’s ability to meet the certification standards of the National Association of Catholic Chaplains.
In the University of Dallas’ Neuhoff School of Ministry, ministry students, immersed in the Catholic theological tradition, develop critical skills for theological reflection and receive high-quality education and formation that is necessary for personal growth, professional ministry and transformative service to the Catholic Church, the broader Christian community and the wider world. The graduate programs offer practice-oriented theological education specific to a wide variety of ministries within and outside the church, in accord with the USCCB/CCA standards for lay ecclesial ministers.
