college of liberal arts
The educational program of the Josephinum College of Liberal Arts seeks to foster in seminarians a deep understanding of the human condition and the Catholic tradition.
The college offers two degrees at the undergraduate level—the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Philosophy degrees—as well as a Certificate of Completion in Philosophical and Theological Studies.
The Bachelor of Arts degree is for those who do not already have a college degree. Seminarians enrolled in the BA program are encouraged to ground this understanding in the intellectual exploration of literature, history, philosophy, and theology, as well as the study of diverse cultures and languages. This curriculum also requires the fulfillment of a major in either philosophy or humanities.
Seminarians with a college degree enroll in the Pre-Theology Program, in which seminarians receive either a Bachelor of Philosophy degree or a Certificate of Completion.
