Intellectual Formation

The Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary Pre-Theology program comprises two years of philosophical studies combined with languages and theology.  The fifth addition of the Program of Priestly Formation (PPF) of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) specifies that a man satisfies 30 credit hours of philosophy and has a basis in Latin and Greek in addition to Spanish (6 hours of Latin, 6 hours of Greek, 6 hours of Spanish).  Eighteen credit hours of theology are also recommended by the PPF.  All of these credit hours are undergraduate credit hours.
