Credit on offer for ‘Studies in Catholic Thought’ Students
Students who complete Studies in Catholic Thought as part of their Higher School Certificate will now be eligible to receive credit towards Bachelor or Diploma studies at Campion College thanks to a new Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) agreement.
The agreement, signed with Sydney Catholic Schools, applies to all NSW-based students completing Studies in Catholic Thought, a NESA endorsed course developed by the Catholic dioceses of NSW.
Upon enrolling in Campion’s undergraduate liberal arts program, such students will now receive credit towards two level-100 theology units, effectively reducing their first-year workload by 25 per cent.
Campion president Dr Paul Morrissey said he was delighted to endorse this agreement, which recognises the academic rigor of Studies in Catholic Thought and its alignment with Campion’s academic program.
“Studies in Catholic Thought challenges students to develop their critical thinking and analytical skills as they engage with the theological, philosophical, ethical and aesthetic traditions of the Catholic Church and how this has shaped and continues to shape wider society.”
“I commend the students who are grappling with these ideas in their secondary studies and wholeheartedly encourage them to continue with this endeavour at tertiary level.”
Campion’s Bachelor of Arts in the Liberal Arts and Diploma of Liberal Arts provide students with an integrated understanding of the events, ideas, personalities and works which have shaped Western culture. Students undertake systematic study in history, literature, philosophy, theology and science, developing knowledge and skills to thrive in all spheres of life and achieve professional success in a range of fields.
