Master of Arts in Spirituality or Spiritual Companionship

Commencing October 2018 - Part-time Evening (6 Semesters)

In order to respond to the growing interest for a deeper understanding of spirituality, the Faculty of Theology is offering two courses to help students acquire a holistic perception of life and of the human person, and to value the contribution of spirituality to the individual and human society.

Master of Arts in Spirituality

The Master of Arts in Spirituality is intended to help students acquire a holistic perception of life, the human person, and to value the contribution of spirituality in this regard. It offers students a solid grounding in: the tradition of Christian spirituality and theology; the skills needed to become animators of others in their process of Christian development; and the ability to discern the signs of the times. In the second year of study, students will be able to choose whether to pursue their interests in General Spirituality (Stream A) or Carmelite Spirituality (Stream B).
