In the two Faculty courses (Theology and Religious Sciences) the university program aims to develop intellectual maturity, spiritual freedom and solidarity which are necessary for a conscious personal, social and ecclesiastical improvement.
Teachers of Catholic religion
Most of our students long for a career as teachers of Catholic religion in all private and public schools. Thus our study program offers complete and articulated courses of pedagogy, didactic, school-theory, school legislation and two-year training in public schools with qualified tutors.
Many foreign students are coming from all over the continents and choose this faculty for their studies. Romania, Ghana, India, France, Togo, Brazil, Ivory Coast, Ukraine, Ecuador, Sri Lanka, Chile and Australia are the most represented countries. The Solomon Islands (Oceania) are the farthest ones.
After being educated at the Faculty a number of Italian students decide to spend their proficiency in international cooperation, humanitarian projects, missionary activities and voluntary work. Others decide to serve local churches as pastoral assistants (Swiss and Germany).
Cultural, theological and spiritual in-depth study
Young people and adults may sign for single courses as auditors. They do it for personal interest in fundamental and current themes ranging from Bible to ethics, from religious pluralism to a debate between theology and sciences and from social sciences to art.
Teachers’ updating and formation
The Faculty is accredited at the MIUR according to the Guidelines 170/2016. A number of courses are loaded in the operating system SOPHIA.
