The Reformation: A Tragedy in Five Acts

What is “right” and “wrong?” Is what’s right for you right for me? Is there a right and wrong for everyone, all the time?
These are difficult questions to discuss in our culture. We live in a society that supports the opinion that each person should make up his or her own morality—that there is no moral truth that applies to everyone.
True Reformers: Saints of the Catholic Reformation Dr. Christopher Blum
Nobely-born, wealthy, captivating, and headstrong, Teresa de Ahumada was an unlikely timber for a great work of renovation. After many years of complacent living in a fashionable convent, Teresa was drawn into a mystical embrace and learned directly from Divine Inspiration what a life more pleasing to God would be. She spent the last twenty years of her life in a whirlwind of activity as the founder of the Discalced or reformed branch of the Carmelites in Spain.
The Master of Arts and Graduate Certificate programs at the Augustine Institute are a faithful handing-on of Catholic Truth from the very sources of the Faith: Sacred Scripture, the writings of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, and the documents of the living Magisterium, chief among which the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Second Vatican Council.

The Graduate School of the Augustine Institute offers two Master of Arts degrees, the M.A. (Theology) and the M.A. in Leadership for the New Evangelization. The two degree programs share six courses: three in Sacred Doctrine, two in Sacred Scripture, and a course in the theology of the New Evangelization. The M.A. (Theology) gives students a deeper formation in the history of Catholic thought and culture, has an additional course in Sacred Scripture, and also includes space for three elective courses. This degree program is typically chosen by Catholic teachers and by those whose chief desire is for intellectual formation. The M.A. in Leadership for the New Evangelization is a pastoral degree program, aimed at those seeking to work in the Church as youth ministers, adult faith-formation directors, Directors of Religious Education, and diocesan-level officials. While the degree is currently only available to on-campus students in Denver, its four required courses in pastoral theology are also available through distance education and may be taken as electives by students in the M.A. (Theology) program.
