Quarterly Adjunct Lecturer
Professor Miller studied Foreign Service at Georgetown University, philosophy and theology at the University of Tübingen in Germany, and received his MA and PhD in systematic theology and ethics at Boston College. His academic interests focus on the convergence of anthropology, soteriology, political theology, virtue ethics, Trinity, and Christology. Since 2008, Professor Miller has served an associate professor of Theology, Philippine Studies, and Catholic Studies at the University of San Francisco. He has taught at the Ateneo de Zamboanga, the University of Asia and the Pacific, Boston College, Georgetown University, and Seton Hall (as the inaugural Toth/Lonergan Endowed Visiting Chair), as well as at Mt. Calvary Elementary School in Forestville, MD and Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, NV. He has been involved in ministry to recovering addicts and those in prison. In his teaching and volunteer work, he follows the example of his mother, a retired elementary school teacher, and his father, who directed Catholic Charities.
