What kinds of classes do you take?
The first year, the year of Humanities, gives the seminarian a natural foundation for the supernatural formation ahead, through courses in Catholic Doctrine, Latin, Literature, English, and Music. The year of Spirituality follows, wherein seminarians learn about the spiritual life in Ascetical and Mystical Theology, and take introductory courses on Scripture, Liturgy, and the Acts of the Magisterium (major Church documents setting forth important points of doctrine). Next come two years of Philosophy, which cover the History of Philosophy, Logic, Cosmology, Psychology, Ethics, and Metaphysics. The seminarian completes his formation with three years of Theology, following St. Thomas' Summa Theologica in Dogmatic and Moral Theology, along with Canon Law and Pastoral Theology. Each of the last five years also contains courses in Scripture and Church History.
