Meghan Schofield was born and raised in Tyngsboro, Massachusetts, and is one of five children. Her siblings and parents created the atmosphere and environment that shaped her person most deeply, and gave her a secure sense of the Faith and family life. She attended both private school and homeschool, and credits much of her desire to learn and love of education to her homeschooling experience. 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. Her particular interests in theology include bio-medical ethics, patrology, Mariology, Trinitarian theology, sacramentality, and generally the relationship between theology and culture. In literature, she has an appreciation for the classic works of literature, early American literature, and the Southern agrarian movement.
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. Meghan began teaching for the University in the Fall of 2012, when a theology position opened on the faculty, and has thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and the opportunity to work with students from Franciscan. Her main purpose in teaching is to communicate and engender a love for the Truth. It is her hope that through classes she can awaken something new in the student, and help them to develop certain habits of mind which enable them to articulate more clearly and deeply the subject matter at hand.
