The harmonic synthesis of St. Thomas Aquinas between faith and reason serves as the foundation of our teaching, research, and public service. The University’s renowned Faculties of Theology, Philosophy, Canon Law, and Social Sciences, as well as the ISSR Mater Ecclesiae, foster the formation of new leaders committed to promoting human development and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Angelicum is comprised of 1,104 students from more than 93 countries, and four continents worldwide.
The University fosters an engaged and interactive teaching environment. 60% of the courses of study in the Faculties of Theology and Philosophy are in the English language.
The Angelicum is blessed to have 440 years of history, filled with the contributions of many notable alumni, including Saint John Paul II.
Taking our inspiration from Thomas Aquinas, the Faculty of Theology continues to transmit and deepen the theological Tradition of the Church by attentive listening to the Word of God, fidelity to the Magisterium of the Church, and sensitivity to contemporary questions.
With Aquinas, the Faculty of Philosophy believes that, in principle, reason can lead the mind to God and that it can offer insights into many general and fundamental problems of human existence.
Inspired by the teaching of Aquinas that canon law is a participation in divine law as human law is a participation in natural law, the Faculty of Canon Law provides students with a thorough formation in the current codes of canon law, including their theological foundations, juridical principles and practical applications.
The Faculty of Social Sciences contributes to the integral and sustainable development of society in the light of Catholic social teaching and the Dominican social tradition through the interdisciplinary formation of change agents in its teaching, research and community outreach.
ISSR Mater Ecclesiae
The Mater Ecclesiae Advanced Institute of Religious Studies, linked to the Faculty of Theology of PUST, is a school of theological formation where one trains oneself to think through the faith, to exercise a believing reason.
