Course summary

Overview

Aimed primarily at those who are actively engaged in promoting social justice and the common good, this programme supports reflective study of the theology of Catholic Social Teaching. You will study the principles of Catholic Social Teaching in their historical, political and ethical contexts, explore the theologies of God, human personhood and the wider cosmos that underpin this teaching, while reflecting on how these can continue to be developed through consideration of your own professional experience. The programme will therefore help to support your own work in Catholic Social Teaching as well as giving you a formal academic qualification.

When are the teaching sessions?

The programme is delivered through blended learning, which is essentially a mixture of online and face-to-face provision.

There are two weekend face-to-face teaching blocks for the semester 1 module (either Catholic Social Teaching in the Context of Contemporary Ethics or Catholic Social Teaching within the Construction of Theology), one block usually in October and one usually in December. In between these weekends the module makes use of online learning with reading provided on the University’s Virtual Learning Environment and regular online seminars.

The second module (Catholic Social Teaching in Practice Communicating Research) is delivered through blended learning, with a number of face-to-face sessions during the semester supplemented by online learning. Students will present their thoughts on their own application of Catholic Social Teaching to a group of peers at the end of the programme as part of the final assessment.

Attendance

The Certificates are delivered through blended learning, involving a small number of intensive teaching blocks, supplemented by online interaction.
