In the implementation of art. 64.1 of the Statutes (In each Faculty/Institute there can be departments, sections and course schedules, framed on the basis of the specializations established by the respective Councils), the Faculty Council has established that the second Cycle, or Biennium of Specialization of the Faculty of Theology, is articulated in the following Specializations:

Fundamental Theology;
Interfaith Theology from an ecumenical-communal perspective;
Dogmatic Theology with Specialization in Christology, Trinitarian and Anthropology;
Dogmatic Theology with Specialization in Ecclesiology and Sacramentary.

Furthermore, in the Specializations, a special “course schedule” is established, respectively: Theology of the Christian life (course schedule specialization in Christology);History (course schedule specialization in Ecclesiology).

To be able to enroll or register as an ordinary student in the 1st year of the Specialization Cycle of the Faculty of Theology it is necessary to present original documentation certifying:

  • the attainment of the qualification (High School Diploma), which allows enrollment at the public university in one’s own country;
  • the attainment of the academic degree of Bachelors in Theology;
  • knowledge in Italian language.

Anyone who has completed institutional philosophical-theological studies in a Seminary or in a religious Student Residence and does not have a Bachelors in Theology can, until further notice, be admitted as an ordinary student to the two-year postgraduate course after having taken an exam on some subjects (concerning Sacred Scripture, Dogmatic Theology and Moral Theology) and having attended a special course on Methodology.
