Master of Divinity Program
Academic development takes place four days a week at Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology in Hales Corners, Wisconsin - a suburb of Milwaukee.
The school, founded in 1932, is an apostolate of the Priests of the Sacred Heart. The core academic program at Sacred Heart is the accredited Master of Divinity program. About 100 men, including seminarians from Saint Francis de Sales, are in this program. Seminarians who haven't met the required credits in philosohpy or theology first enroll in Sacret Heart's Pre-Theology program.
About four days a week, seminarians carpool to Sacred Heart to take classes. A few sample courses include:
- Synoptic Gospels and Acts of the Apostles
- American Catholic Church
- Liturgy and Sacramentology
- Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation
- Medical, Moral and Social Ethics
- Fundamental Preaching
- Sacred Heart: Devotion and Doctrine
