The Licentiate in Sacred Theology is a combined program of study, uniting the requirements for an undergraduate degree (Bachelors of Divinity) with the foundational portion of the requirements of the graduate degree (Masters in Sacred Theology). This five-year program is geared to provide solid biblical, theological and sacerdotal education, preparing one for Holy Orders as Deacon or Priest. Although this program is based on a five year curriculum, students may condense the program into 2 1/2 years if they focus their efforts throughout each year.
