About School of Ministry

Immersed in the Catholic theological tradition. Devoted to transformative, hands-on service to Christ and his Church.

-Most Rev. Kevin Farrell, Bishop of the Diocese of Dallas

The Neuhoff School of Ministry offers a wide variety of academic, continuing education, certificate and adult faith formation programs for students committed to pastoral service within the Catholic Church, their communities and the world at large. Courses are offered both in person at our Irving, Texas, and Rome, Italy, campuses or online from anywhere in the world. Teaching faculty have distinguished themselves academically and through professional  leadership positions in national and international Catholic organizations. 

We are committed to offering students practice-oriented programs of theological studies and pastoral ministry that develop the critical thinking skills necessary for theological reflection, the practical skills for effective leadership and the habits of mind needed to continue to grow in faith and service.

Committed to students with a passion to grow hearts and minds.

Our graduate and undergraduate degree programs are grounded in the Catholic theological tradition. The undergraduate degree program in particular combines a comprehensive series of pastoral ministry courses with a broad liberal education based on the great works of Western civilization. Students who may not be seeking a degree but who want to engage in intensive Bible study from a Catholic perspective can enroll in our Catholic Biblical School’s 4-year course of study that covers every book in the Bible. We also offer continuing education programs for faith formation
