My daughter will be receiving her Sacrae Theologiae Magister from a Pontifical University this June.
She most certainly would have been affected.
Congratulations—that is something to be proud of. I can see it being a real problem for that degree. At the same time, it won’t affect 99% of those studying at Catholic Institutes in the U.S.
Even in those places that will be affected, it will take a couple years before changes are actually put into place unless the institution was already leaning in that direction.
I’m guessing that, being from the States, she would have picked up a B.A. followed by an S.T.B. before the S.T.M. If you come from Europe and skip the B.A. stage, there is a gap in education. If she is going on for an S.T.D., it could be a problem.
What is her field?
