CDU BobickFeatured Student

Law enforcement officer Brian Bobick is enrolled in the BA in Theology program and working toward his graduate degree at the same time through our new Accelerated MA Track. Brian is a police sergeant in Washington, DC, where he has served for 15 years. He facilitates scripture studies in his parish in his free time, and he and his wife are expecting a child in the coming months. 

“I explored several online universities, such as Augustine and Christendom. CDU was exclusively on-line and exclusively theology, and it has a great line-up of qualified professors,” Brian says. Being in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, he also appreciated that CDU was local.

CDU Dr. AmbrosioGraduate Course Explores the Catholic Theological Tradition

Offered in both the Summer I and II terms, THEO 503: The Catholic Theological Tradition is perfect for students new to the study of theology. The course is taught by Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio, a world-renowned commentator on Catholic issues known for his ability to make profound subjects understandable and relevant to everyday life. Explore the history of Christian theology from the perspective of faith seeking deeper understanding and trace its development from the end of the New Testament times to the Second Vatican Council. Critical moments in the history of theology and key issues debated in each epoch will be discussed, and students will be introduced to some of history's most notable theologians and their varied ways of thinking about the things of God.

Dr. D’Ambrosio, also known as “Dr. Italy,” is a New York Times list best-selling author who frequently appears on a variety of TV and radio shows, including the “O’Reilly Factor” and “Geraldo Rivera at Large.”
