Priestly Formation

The Program for Priestly Formation

The Fifth Edition of the Program for Priestly Formation calls for 30 hours of philosophical coursework distributed over eleven areas of study (four historical areas and seven systematic ones). Borromeo Seminary offers ten 3-credit-hour courses. Four courses cover the four historical areas, and six courses cover the systematic ones, with a unit on Logic included in the Medieval course. The systematic courses draw upon the Catholic intellectual heritage, especially the thought of St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas
