    Ms. Meghan Schofield

    Instructor of Theology, Austria Program

    Brief Bio

    Meghan Schofield was born and raised in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts. Her most deeply formative education was that of her family’s life together. She graduated from Ave Maria University (Naples, Florida) in 2007 with a major in Theology and a minor in Literature, and continued her theological education at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute (Washington, DC) earning an MTS in Biotechnology and Ethics in 2009.

    Meghan first began her association with Franciscan University in 2009 when she moved to Gaming, Austria, to assume the position of co-director of Formation, Theology professor, and ESL instructor for the Language and Catechetical Institute. She currently teaches courses on Theology & Culture, The Creed, States of Life, and Sacraments; as well as various classes in English grammar. Meghan began teaching for the University in the Fall of 2012, and has principally taught Christian Moral Principles, as well as a special topics course, Readings in American Literature: Wendell Berry.

    Her particular interests in theology include Bio-Medical Ethics, Moral Theology, Patristics, Trinitarian theology, and generally the relationship between theology and culture. In literature, she has a special appreciation for early American literature, and the Southern agrarian movement. In addition, Meghan has a keen interest in the interplay between theology and agriculture (being herself a certified Permaculture designer), and a properly conceived notion of the “theology of creation”.
