Course content

This exciting new course is aimed at those in communities, movements and networks actively engaged in promoting social justice and the common good, and at those not necessarily engaged in Catholic Social Teaching (CST), who would like to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Theology through deepening their understanding of the Church’s radical tradition of social teaching.

During the part-time programme you will study the principles of CST in its historical, political and ethical contexts, and explore the theologies of God, human personhood and the wider community of creation, that underpin CST. You will have the opportunity to undertake theological reflection on Catholic social thought in relation to your own professional and life experience. The programme will therefore help to support and sustain your own engagement and activism as well as giving you a formal academic qualification.
