Graduate School Language Requirements
MA students concentrating in systematic or moral theology must demonstrate an ability to read Latin as part of their degree requirements. Students may take a competency exam to satisfy this requirement. The exam consists of a theological passage in Latin to translate into English with the aid of a Latin/English dictionary.
Occasionally, other language courses may be offered as a convenience for students, but the credits earned for language courses never count towards the Master’s degree or diploma, nor may language courses be audited – they must be taken for credit because of the grading work involved for the professor.
