Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education grants incorporation of DWIMS Tagaytay to UST Faculty of Sacred Theology

The Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education by its Decree (Prot. N. 491/2014) issued on July 25, 2020, has granted the Incorporation of Divine Word Institute of Mission Studies (DWIMS), run by the Society of the Divine Word (SVD) in Tagaytay City, to the Faculty of Sacred Theology of the Pontifical University of Santo Tomas. 

Incorporation is the highest level of ecclesiastical academic collaboration that enables the Faculty to grant canonical Licentiate and Doctorate degrees in Theology, major in Mission Studies, through the incorporated Institute.

This is an important milestone for the Church in Asia since DWIMS serves as a training ground in mission, not only for the 15 SVD Provinces in Asia but also for many other students from the continent who wish to specialize in Mission Studies.
