The JP2 Institute issues Licentiate and Doctorate canonical degrees for both theological-pastoral and anthropological-cultural focus and allows students to customize their study plan taking into account their own academic curriculum (for example, teaching experience, previously acquired skills and qualifications); thus allowing for a flexibility and optimization of studies, with equal scientific and educational rigor. Diploma courses for more specific pastoral and social subjects in the areas of spiritual accompaniment, pastoral counselling, family mediation and the like will also remain available.
The qualifications required are:
- for the Licentiate in Theology (STL): the Bachelor’s degree in Theology (STB, at least, cum laude);
- for the Licentiate in Sciences: any university degree, at least three-year-long;
- for the Doctorate in Theology (STD): a Licentiate in Theology (STL), at least with magna cum laude;
- for the Doctorate in Sciences: a Licentiate in Sciences at least with magna cum laude;
- for the Diploma in Sciences: a five-year high-school diploma;
