Certificate in Mission StudiesDownload the program description (PDF)
A certificate is an independent undergraduate program comprising 30 credits, leading to a diploma, or undergraduate certificate, approved by the Senate.
The aim of the Certificate in Mission Studies is principally to prepare qualified international and national agents of evangelization within their cultural environment (Ordinary Pastoral Care, New Evangelization, Modern Areopagus or beyond their cultural environment – Mission Ad Gentes and Interreligious Dialogue) with groups and individuals. Insofar as understanding develops social tolerance and mutual cooperation, it will also serve the interests of those interested in understanding the international situation through information, analysis and a broader grasp of the relevant issues involved.
The program further aims to serve, inform and educate those who are already involved in missionary or evangelizing work as well as those seeking adequate preparation for such work. The learning outcomes are: First, to introduce the relevant themes basic to missiological study. Second, to provide foundational material for relevant missiological reflection. Third, to provide a basic framework for the application of missiological themes and materials for use in evangelizing activity.
