Learning Methodology

The curriculum favors learning methods, which develop learners’ personalities, and scientific capacities on the one hand, and introduces them to the spirit of Church service on the other. This is made possible thanks to an educational approach which builds knowledge on real life experience, and relates it to theology, in order to achieve the desired pastoral goals. Providing high-quality performance is only one of many methods that the Institute uses to achieve its goals. The Institute adopts: 

  1. A learning methodology, which is adapted to a curriculum more respectful of scientific and educational developments.
  2. An assessment process, which takes into consideration human’s scientific, cultural, and inter-relational dimensions, without hindering personal growth.
  3. An educational methodology that provides a minimum of knowledge, the opportunity to develop the student’s personal talents for better future service, and versatile training of future clergy.
