This degree is designed primarily for those men who wish to study for the Theologian but who do not have the required college background. The program provides the opportunity for prospective students to finish college studies, earn a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, and continue their formation in the Seminary.

 

Prerequisites for entering this program are based on a typical college program of classes which are found in five coordinate groups. Students must have completed a variety of at least 60 units from these groups and must have a grade point average of at least a “C”. Students must also present SAT scores. Please note that the required number of units or hours transferred in from another educational institution must correspond to the following distribution:

 

A Verbal Skills (12 units): 4 courses or 12 units in the areas of grammar, speech, foreign languages. One course must be in composition and a second in speech.

 

B Quantitative Skills (6 units): 2 courses or a minimum of 6 units in the areas of mathematics, algebra, geometry, calculus, statistics, or computer science.

 

C Social Sciences (18 units): 6 courses or a minimum of 18 semester units in American history, western civilization, social and political history, psychology, sociology, economics, anthropology, archeology, political science.

 

D Natural Sciences (6 units): 2 courses or a minimum of 6 semester units in physics, geology, chemistry, biology, physiology, physiological psychology, anatomy, embryology, general science, ecology or health science.

 

E Humanities (18 units): 6 courses or a minimum of 18 semester units in world literature, drama, literary criticism, art, art history, intellectual/cultural history, history of science, music or history of music.

 

Once these prerequisites have been reviewed and approved by the Academic Dean, students will be able to apply for entrance into the B.A. Completion Program. This program consists of a combination of philosophy and theology courses, amounting approximately to sixty (60) units. Upon successful completion of those 60 units, students will then be prepared to enter the Theology Program, a program of 118 units, which leads to ordination to the Priesthood.

Students who have more than the 60 units for entry, will have an adjusted program to accommodate those who may need less time. All prospective students will meet the Academic Dean to review student transcripts and develop an appropriate program for the students.

Students wishing to enter this B.A. Completion Program for the purpose of continuing on to ordination for the priesthood should contact the Information section, of the STAU, for preliminary consultation. The Director will give prospective seminarians the appropriate information and papers they will need.
