Faculty of Theology

Pontificia Università Lateranense > Faculty of Theology

The special teaching and research characteristic practiced in the Faculty of Theology consists in the strong reference to the doctrinal legacy and theological perspective of the Second Vatican Council, re-proposed and developed by all the Popes of the post-conciliar period.

The specific orientation and the main task of the Faculty lie in introducing both seminarians, deacons, priests, religious men and women, the laity to a more mature and qualified knowledge of the Christian faith, but also in “promoting, both in Rome and throughout the world, the dialogus salutis of the Church with culture “(Stat., art. 86), training men and women of all ages to be able to respond in a credible and effective way to the challenges of the new evangelization.

The Faculty of Theology is structured in three Cycles.

  • First Cycle or Institutional Five-year period: it takes five years, and ends with the attainment of the first academic degree: Bachelors in Theology.
  • Second Cycle or Biennium of Specialization: it takes two years, and ends with the attainment of the second academic degree: Specialized Licentiate in Theology.
  • Third Cycle or Superior Biennium of Research: it takes three years, after a Licentiate in Theology, and ends with the attainment of the third academic degree: Doctorate in Theology.
