The School of Theology at the University of Navarra started as a Theological Center in 1964. It was later elevated to the rank of an Institute in 1967 and erected by the Holy See as a School in 1969. Its academic degrees have full canonical and civil validity. The School's primary mission is to provide its students with comprehensive theological training; it also aims to train teachers and researchers in the sacred sciences. Its licentiate (postgraduate/master's) degree programs are divided into three specializations: Biblical Theology, Systematic Theology (Dogmatic Theology and Moral and Spiritual Theology Pathways) and Historical Theology (History of the Church and History of Theology Pathways).
Teaching and research are organized according to a departmental structure. For its ordinary teaching, the School has three Departments (Sacred Scripture, Systematic Theology and Historical Theology), which are teaching and research units to which belong professors working in each area and students preparing their licentiate and doctoral dissertations in the corresponding subjects.
