Programme List

From 2017, CTIS will be offering five programmes - the Certificate in Theology, the Diploma in Theology, the Advanced Diploma in Theology (Dogmatics), the Advanced Diploma in Theology (Scripture) and the Advanced Diploma in Theology (Morals).

 

 

Certificate in Theology

The Certificate in Theology programme provides an introduction to the study of Christian faith in the context of the contemporary church. It is a 18-credit programme that aims to bring students into a first contact with theological study that relates to the central concerns of Christian faith. It is anticipated that students completing the Certificate in Theology will become more informed about the faith of the Catholic Church, and more confident of themselves as believers living that faith in the world today. 

 

The Certificate in Theology is a platform for students to begin considering further studies in theology through CTIS or other institutes of higher theological learning. Students who complete the Certificate in Theology programme and wish to take their studies further at CTIS may: 

          (a) opt for the Diploma in Theology extension programmes, or

          (b) register for other individual courses, provided respective course prerequisites are met.

Student may consult the Academic Director to explore these options.
