ICT Graduate Certification in Catholic Theology – Fall 2021
March 5 - August 9Free
The Institute of Catholic Theology Graduate Certificate in Catholic Theology program aims to introduce the student to the study of theology. Theology, within the context of the Catholic Church, is the academic study of the Word of God, directed at deepening one’s faith in Christ. To achieve this, the study of theology is both spiritual and academic:
Theology, for its part, gains, by way of reflection, an ever deeper understanding of the Word of God found in the Scripture and handed on faithfully by the Church’s living Tradition under the guidance of the Magisterium. Theology strives to clarify the teaching of Revelation with regard to reason and gives it finally an organic and systematic form.
(Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, On the Ecclesial Vocation of the Theologian #21)
Students who meet the requirements can transfer up to 18 graduate credits towards either Franciscan University’s Master of Arts in Theology and Christian Ministry program or Master of Arts in Catechetics and Evangelization program.
