Master of Arts in Theology, Major in Consecrated Life

The program’s vision is integrative. Consecrated Life is studied in its essential relationships with the other forms of Christian life in the Church, especially that of the Laity and that of the Ordained Ministers. The theological approach is interdisciplinary. Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, and other human sciences are engaged with a view to a fuller understanding and living of the Christian discipleship according to the evangelical counsels. The main context of the study and reflection in faith is Asia. The objective is to achieve a form of Consecrated Life that is simultaneously Christian and rooted in the cultural and spiritual traditions of Asia.
