Theology Online with Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J., Th.D.
Fr. Joseph Fessio, Founder of Ignatius Press – Publisher of the Holy Father’s two JESUS OF NAZARETH books, will be offering online theology courses with lectures on each book chapter, study questions, and video clips with the answer to each of the study questions, and exams.
Each of the four Theology Online courses by Fr. Joseph Fessio is a ‘stand-alone’ course, which means the four courses may be taken in any order. Each course has been recommended for three college credits by the American Council on Education. However, because some are more difficult, and there is a logical order to them, we do recommend that they be taken in the following order: Fundamental Theology: Revelation and Christology; Fundamental Theology: The Creed; Biblical Theology: Jesus of Nazareth; Ecclesiology: The Liturgy. If you wish to apply to transfer any of these courses for college credit, please make sure you are taking the correct / recommended course for that purpose at that particular college or university. Please feel free to ask us concerning any questions you may have.
Students must be 16 years old to take these courses, or must have completed 10th grade or the Great Books Roman Year.
The Four Theology Courses
“I have taught the Fundamental Theology: Revelation and Christology course since 1977. Without losing a sense of modesty and objectivity I can say that the students, over the years, have expressed in many ways—some in major publications—how valuable they considered this course. I taught this course for over twenty years at the University of San Francisco and then occasionally for two or three years as a three-unit course at Ave Maria University in Florida (both regionally accredited institutions). The last three of the four theology courses are structured—in method and grading—in the same way as the first course on Revelation and Christology.” – Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J., Th.D.
American Council on Education (ACE) college credit recommendation:
For each of the four courses: “In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, (3) semester hours in Religion or Theology.”
