Moral Theology

Moral Theology

The Licentiate Course in Moral Theology is designed to enable students to obtain a broad, deep, and structured knowledge of core subject areas, as well as of special subject areas (family and sexual morality, life morality, social doctrine of the Church).

Learning objectives

The second cycle is designed to enable students to reach a personal theological synthesis in their speciality, to acquire adequate knowledge of their focus areas, to learn the scientific method of research, and to prepare for teaching.

Courses, seminars, workshops, customised tutoring, and other activities of the Faculty help students achieve this synthesis. The Licentiate thesis, which requires a thorough personal study, must be centred on one of the topics of the selected focus area.


The course is intended for priests, religious, seminarians, and lay people.
