Christendom College graduate school will be welcoming students to its acclaimed six-week Graduate Summer Program this coming June, with registration now open for all interested applicants. The residential program, held on Christendom College’s campus in Front Royal, Virginia, offers interested students the opportunity to pursue graduate-level theological studies during the summer, toward eventually earning a Master of Arts in Theological Studies degree or the Apostolic Catechetical Diploma.
“The Christendom graduate school summer program, on our beautiful Front Royal campus, is an excellent opportunity to experience the fellowship of a true Catholic academic community,” says Kristin Burns, dean of the graduate school and associate professor of philosophy. “This program during the summer gives students that rare opportunity to pursue the kind of graduate-level education that many other graduate programs are unable to provide.”
The graduate school summer program runs for six weeks, beginning June 22 and ending August 1. This summer’s program includes courses in dogmatic, moral, and spiritual theology, in addition to philosophy, Church history, and catechesis and evangelization
In addition, the Vita Consecrata Institue (VCI), co-sponsored by the Institute on Religious Life, is held every summer on the college’s campus, in conjunction with the graduate school summer program. The VCI is an intense summer program of theological studies and spiritual renewal for religious, priests, seminarians, and other consecrated persons. Two sessions are held, one from June 29 through July 10, and the other from July 13-24, with courses focusing on the theology of the consecrated life and spirituality. This summer, a special 10% discount off of tuition, room, and board is being offered in honor of the Year of Consecrated Life for VCI participants attending both sessions, for audit or for credit.
Students attending either program will enjoy the beautiful riverside campus of Christendom, with its full range of recreational possibilities providing a perfect milieu for the study, prayer, and festivity that make up Christian academic community life. The rich liturgical life of the summer program includes daily Mass, Adoration, confession, and Liturgy of the Hours. .
