Universitet haqda məlumat
The university offers licentiate, master and doctoral degrees in various faculties. The Faculté de Théologie is a pontifical institution with the canonical authorization to educate men for the Catholic priesthood. The Faculté de Lettres is a school of the humanities with no explicit religious orientation. During the summer, the Institut opens the Faculté de Lettres to international students month-long terms.
Professors at the university are recruited from sacred (i.e., theology, canon law, etc.) and secular disciplines (e.g., letters, philosophy, education, social sciences, economics). The majority of degrees and diplomas awarded by the Catholic University of Paris are state-authorised diplomas, as the university is certified to issue them by the Ministry of Education. Canonical degrees are awarded in the name of the Holy See and are the result of a prescribed course of study in the ecclesiastical faculties, such as theology and canon law.
The university charges tuition, because the state does not pay the wages of teachers at Catholic institutions of higher learning, as authorized under the Debré Law of 1959. The institute receives a state subsidy which covers 34% of its financial needs. The amount of subsidy, derived from the Ministry for National Education, is independently fixed each year by the government each year within the framework of the national budget and without obligation or contract of any kind.
