Jeff Morgan received his PhD in Christian Ethics from the University of Notre Dame in 2015 and held postdoctoral positions at Notre Dame and Villanova University before coming to Saint Joseph’s College in 2019, where he is an Assistant Professor of Theology. Dr. Morgan works in the areas of modern theology and theological ethics, specifically in research and teaching that explores fundamental topics in theology such as the nature of moral agency, conscience, and responsibility and that looks for the practical implications of those topics across a range of contemporary moral dilemmas (especially in medical and environmental ethics). In this regard Dr. Morgan teaches introductory theology courses as well as ethical courses such as Biomedical Ethics and Food Ethics. His scholarly work has appeared in the Journal of Religious Ethics, the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics, Studies in Christian Ethics, and the Heythrop Journal. His first book on conscience in Christian ethics, “The Single Individual and the Searcher of Hearts,” has been accepted for publication and is forthcoming.
