St. John Vianney Online M.A. Program Launch

Thursday, Dec 12, 2019all day - English

This fall, St. John Vianney College Seminary officially launches its fully-accredited Online Master's and Bachelor's in Philosophy Program. ADOM employees are eligible for a discounted rate. Teachers of ADOM schools can get as much as a 49% tuition discount.

Show more >>

St. John Vianney's Online Degree Programs were conceived as a way of responding to Pope Francis' challenge for Christians to be "missionary disciples" who go out into the "existential peripheries" of the current age and engage society in a way that offers the richness of the Catholic intellectual tradition to those grappling with complex issues of our time.

St. John Vianney is the first and only freestanding college seminary in the United States to offer fully-accredited online degrees. As the only freestanding bilingual college seminary in the country, the online programs allow St. John Vianney to better position itself as an instrument of evangelization.

Through these programs, St. John Vianney, the first and oldest seminary in Florida, seeks to reach out in service to the larger faith community in the state and beyond. They are also our way of sharing the seminary's excellent philosophical program of formation as it celebrates its 60th year of service to the Church.

The online programs are being offered primarily to college-level and pre-theology Formation Houses that are looking for a solid formation in authentic Catholic philosophy from a fully-accredited institution in a way that will allow them greater flexibility and control over their community's schedules. They are also open to religious and lay students who wish to pursue undergraduate or graduate degrees in philosophy.
