Course Description

This degree will give students a thorough grounding at an advanced level to the principles, history and application of Catholic Social Teaching and related disciplines.

Catholic Social Teaching is an increasingly important element in Christian moral teaching, valued across different churches. This course is the first MA degree programme devoted to this subject taught face-to-face in any university in the UK and Ireland.

St Mary's University has a Catholic ethos. Moreover, since its foundation in the 19th century it has had a consistent vocation to serve the Church in its poorest communities: Catholic Social teaching witnesses to what is called 'the preferential option for the poor', so St Mary's is the obvious place to study the subject.

  • This is the only complete programme in Catholic Social Teaching taught face to face in the UK and Ireland
  • World events, the increasing importance of social teaching in the churches and the public profile of Pope Francis make this a good time to study this subject
  • The ethos and history of St Mary's make it the best possible place to study this programme
