Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University

The goal of the Jesuit School of Theology‘s project is to build an appreciation of the natural sciences into the culture of the school through curriculum, student participation, and a series of workshops. The principal activity will be to include units of physical science in six-to-nine theology courses per year.

AAAS will assign JST a science advisor to facilitate the curriculum development.
