Our Faculty

One of the first words often used to describe the SCE is “community.” It’s our mission to support you through every step of your journey. That support is evident in the classroom, where our faculty understand the challenges of being an adult learner. These teachers — a mix of full-time PC faculty and industry professionals — are collaborators, inspiring educators, and student advocates.

Our Students

SCE students come from all walks of life. We know. Our students are parents who are going back to school, professionals looking to advance within their current company, and military members. Just like you, they faced obstacles when they decided to go back to school. And just like you, they’re overcoming those obstacles.

Student Profile


mercedes.jpgMercedes Hernandez

B.A. Theology
After easily transferring past credits from RIC and CCRI, Mercedes was off to a great start continuing her education at PC. She credits the supportive SCE staff and the camaraderie of her peers for giving her the inspiration to achieve her dream of earning a college degree.
“We all have the same goal—success—and we all have the same love for SCE. It makes the difference between successfully graduating or getting left behind.”
 
“The SCE staff didn't treat me like another statistic passing through the halls but as an individual student with individual goals. Their goal was helping me succeed in mine.”
 

What You Can Do With a Theology Degree

Though the most obvious career choice may seem to be a minister or other spiritual leader, theology graduates can be found in a range of occupations. You may consider a career in parochial school teaching, fundraising, or community-based roles such as social work, counseling, or government policymaking.
 
No matter your professional path, a theology degree helps you understand the foundations of our culture, discern ways to honor your spirituality in the secular world, and grapple with the moral and ethical challenges that we all face. Lawyers, politicians, journalist, and other professionals also often consult with theology graduates for their insight and expertise in matters of religious diversity.
