This program aims to provide an overall vision of the Catholic Christian theological tradition. The general academic objective of this program is to foster critical thinking and to provide a basic theological culture with an overview of Scriptures, the main currents in the history of Christianity, and fundamental questions related to Christian doctrines and practices.
- Spread over four years, it involves three major themes:
- God and the human being;
- Jesus Christ and Christian existence; and
- the Christian community and commitment.
Particular attention is given to developing theoretical and practical knowledge of methods and scientific approaches in various theological subject areas (exegesis, history, ethics, and reflective theology). Course examples include Christology, Theological Anthropology, History of Early Christianity, Social and Political Commitment of Christians, among many others. Students in this program will be put in touch with primary and secondary theological sources in order to assess their contribution to the history and evolution of ideas throughout the Western tradition. Direct access to primary sources is encouraged through the study of ancient languages.
