Admission not allowed.

2 years (Full-time study)


(DEGREE TO BE DISCONTINUED - Admission not allowed)


The main aim of the School of Spirituality is to present the message of Christian spirituality to all Christians looking to further their knowledge in this area; a message that over the course of history has shaped the life of the Church and showed the strength of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of the faithful.

The subjects offered are a selection of those corresponding to the Specialization in Spiritual Theology that leads to the Licentiate (five-year) Degree. However, the School itself focuses on contributing to the spiritual formation of people looking for a greater understanding of the style of this tradition and, in turn, to aptly pass on this tradition to others.

In addition to historical courses, the School offers other modules that help students to better interpret and understand the relationships of God with human beings in the very diverse contexts of our daily lives.
