  1. Sacred Heart has wonderful and caring professors. Unfortunately some do not know how to teach. There are wonderful theologians, but their pedagogical and people skills are sorely lacking. They know their subject matter, but not how to teach it. Most drown the good that could be gained by students with busywork. Unrealistic amounts of reading material, class projects, group projects and presentations make it a “work for the grade” type of experience, rather than a learn for the sake of the Church or your vocation. Having obtained my MDiv here, I would not recommend this institution if you truly want to learn. You will find yourself dedicated to busywork and flying by the seat of your pants.
