The Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception has introduced a new Master of Arts degree with a specialization in Thomistic Studies. The M.A. in Thomistic Studies specializes in the study of the theological synthesis of St. Thomas Aquinas. This 36 credit-hour program is offered exclusively during the summer. The degree can be acquired over the course of four consecutive summers, with the possibility of a fifth summer for thesis development and defense. Students take two three-week courses every summer for four credits each.
Students receive an intensive formation in Aquinas’s texts and ideas, with classical Thomistic thought presented in the areas of systematic and moral theology. The course of studies also considers modern topics, highlighting the relevance of St. Thomas’s thought for contemporary theological discourse. The degree prepares students for advanced study in the area of Thomistic thought and theology.
