License in History of Theology

Requirements for achieving the grade

According to the rules of the Bologna Process, new members for the degree of the License must reach a total number of 120 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) distributed as follows:

  • In the first year of the specialization the student will have to choose a moderator with which to start writing the License thesis. This, together with the comprehensive exam, is worth 30 ECTS. The licensees must also participate in the seminar of research provided for PhD students with the aim of preparing methodologically the writing of the the thesis. The scheme to be submitted for approval must follow the guidelines established by the Faculty. There are no credits for this seminar in the case of the preparation of the thesis.
  • In addition, the student will get an additional 5 ECTS for two exams-verification in which he demonstrates the ability to read and understand two modern languages (English, French, German, Spanish). Language exams are held regularly at the PIL. A specific registration in the secretariat is required for this exam. The obligatory courses, the optional courses and the two seminars must cover at least 85 ECTS. To reach this number the student can take more than 3 ECTS courses, or produce (in addition to the exam) a consistent written paper which, evaluated by the teacher, would raise it to the value of 5 or 6 ECTS with a written paper.
  • The vote of the License is calculated for 30% on the average of the exams, 30% on the written work, 10% on the defense of the the thesis and 30% on the inclusive exam. The courses of your choice are not included in the general program of the Mabillon Institute. The student can choose these courses in the other programs of the Faculty of Theology or other faculties of the University. With the approval of the Dean, personalized programs can be developed.
