Masters pathways

The formation you will receive with Chavagnes, as a student on the ICES Liberal Arts programme, will equip you intellectually for a wide range of future career options, and also qualify you to enrol for a Masters degree. We have a few suggestions of universities which are keen to receive graduates from our Liberal Arts programme onto their Masters courses.

Humanities in France

France (Masters degree awarded by the Holy See): ICES, the Institut Catholique d’Etudes Supérieures in the Vendée. Vatican-validated 2-year Masters in Catholic Humanities (literature, philosophy, history, cultural studies). For graduates of our BA Liberal Arts programme their level of French will be sufficient to participate in the ICES Masters. We are also working with our partners at ICES to adapt this Masters for an English-speaking public, with the possibility of English-language examinations and Masters thesis.    Full details of French programme here.

The English version of the Vatican Masters is now available from Chavagnes Studium, in partnership with ICES. Details here.

Philosophy in Poland

KUL (Poland) – Catholic University of Lublin, 2-year MA in Philosophy. KUL offers BA, MA and PhD philosophy programmes through English and will be welcoming applications from students of the Chavagnes Liberal Arts BA for their MA in Philosophy, which is available full time in Lublin and also by distance learning.  Full details here.

Theology and Leadership in Colorado

In the USA, we have received confirmation from the Augustine Institute in Colorado that they would be very happy to receive students from our Liberal Arts degree into their Masters programmes in Theology or in Leadership. Their 2-year Theology MA is also available through distance learning. Full details here.

MA in Catholic Theology from Christendom College

Christendom College has told us that they think the “preparation your students receive positions them for success in our program.”

They offer an MA in theology aimed at graduates in other disciplines. Similar to the Augustine Institute, the focus here on is evangelisation.

The Notre Dame Graduate School of Christendom College is an authentically Catholic MA program in Theology. It is a program steeped in tradition and distinguished both by its fidelity to the Magisterium and by its focus on the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. Originally founded in 1969 by Msgr. Eugene Kevane as the Notre Dame Pontifical Catechetical Institute, today, the Notre Dame Graduate School of Christendom College remains faithful to its original mission to be a center of theological renewal in and for the Church, dedicated to the pursuit of truth and committed to scholarly excellence in service to the New Evangelization. Christendom’s program is characterized by deep study of primary sources of the faith within the context of a personal and supportive faculty/student relationship. In this way students are formed into living vessels of the Catholic tradition.  Full details here.
