The Center for Religious Studies and Ethics (CRSE) held its first Academic Discourse last November 21, 2016. This first Academic Discourse featured the lectures of Fr. Florentino Bolo, Jr., O.P., JCD, who completed his Doctorate in Canon Law at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas (the Angelicum), Rome; Dr. Allan A. Basas, who finished his Doctorate in Sacred Theology at UST Faculty of Sacred Theology; and Dr. Joel Sagut who acquired his Ph.D. Philosophy from the UST Graduate School.

The Academic Discourse series is meant to feature the inaugural lectures of professors in the Institute of Religion and the Ecclesiastical Faculties, and researchers affiliated to CRSE, who have recently earned their Doctoral degrees.
