ISSR all’Apollinare, in collaboration with the Research Center Markets, Culture & Ethics, is launching a new two-year specialization (Masters) in Christian Humanism and Economic Development (UCSE).

The course is geared toward those who would like to work, or already collaborate, in areas that require formation in Christian teachings that address the current ethical and social-economic problems. This program is also geared toward any who are involved in catechesis, or the education of laity out in the work force.

At the same time, the two-year Executive Program begins, open to anyone who has previously completed undergrad studies.

Also, from November 1 onward, enrollment for the course Family Love Education is open, a program which utilizes the methodology of evolved e/learning (Laab2), in which content is shared through an online learning platform.

The objective is to “offer anthropological, psychological and theological foundations of the Christian vision of marriage and family in order to study the more practical aspects of conjugal life and the education of children."
