The vast majority of lay students at the Institute enter one of the civil degree programs: the Master of Theological Studies in Marriage and Family; the Master of Theological Studies in Biotechnology and Ethics; or the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Theology with a Concentration in Person, Marriage, and Family.
These programs are structured according to American academic norms and are accredited through the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Graduates of these programs hold positions in parish and diocesan ministry; secondary education; public policy; law; medicine; journalism and publishing; business; and the arts. Graduates also teach in colleges, universities, and seminaries in the U.S.A., Canada, Australia, India, Spain, Poland, Lithuania, Uganda, Sierra Leone, and the Philippines, among others.
After the January deadline, admissions continue on a rolling basis for the spaces that remain available.
