Identity​

We are a Catholic institution of learning dedicated to advancing the frontiers of knowledge in the theoretical and applied fields through quality graduate education that is comprehensive and responsive to the needs of society.

We are committed to the formation of scholars and high-quality professionals who are ethical, competent, compassionate, and committed to the service of their respective professions, the Church, the nation, and the global community.

We envision a Graduate School that stands for excellence and innovation and that is globally recognized for its distinct degree programs and quality research outputs.

The Graduate School commits itself to develop: 

  1. Competent professionals who, inspired by the ideals of St. Antoninus of Florence, promote excellence in the production, advancement, and transmission of specialized knowledge and skills in the sciences, the arts, and community service; 
  2. Scholarly researchers and creative thinkers who, kindled by St. Thomas Aquinas’s ardour for truth, aspire to become fonts of intellectual creativity and, in their quest for quality research, are proficient and critical in assessing and communicating information in various fields that impact the professions, the Church, the nation, and the global community; 
  3. Professional Christian leaders who, touched by St. Dominic de Guzman’s apostolic fire and warmed by Mary’s motherly care, articulate ethics and truth, high level of moral maturity in resolving issues and promoting social justice and compassion for the poor, and care for the environment; 
  4. Globally engaged citizens who, with ardent advocacy for life, promote a deeper understanding of tolerance and justice as well as linguistic, religious, and cultural diversities as a result of precise evaluation of modern problems and inquiries; 
  5. Committed scholars who, nurtured by the dogmas of Christian faith and values, are dedicated to the pursuit of truth through the promotion of an intellectual culture that values academic rigor and freedom of scientific investigations; and 
  6. Lifelong learners who, empowered by St. Antoninus of Florence’s zeal for learning, are committed to the advancement of a higher culture through a continuous search for intellectual inquiries and new knowledge as well as faithfulness to Catholic intellectual traditions. 

Upon successful completion of the MA in Information and Library Science, the graduate will be able to:

  1. The learner will have demonstrated the ability to do technical works (cataloguing, indexing, abstracting, and etc. ) in the field of library and information science.
  2. The learner will apply creative and critical thinking skills in addressing issues in librarianship and information science and research capabilities in analysing, interpreting, evaluating, synthesizing, disseminating and/or applying theoretical and practical knowledge on the different aspects of library and information science.
  3. The learner will have demonstrated the competence in the preparation of proposals and innovative programs for the strategic management and exhibited positive attitude and ethical values that contribute to the success of the library organization.
  4. The learner will have demonstrated the competence in the preparation of proposals and innovative programs for the strategic management and exhibited positive attitude and ethical values that contribute to the success of the library organization.
  5. The learner will demonstrate competence in developing cross-cultural communication skills including the ability to listen, learn, exchange ideas, and understand local needs in a global context and find balance between global and local perspectives.
