The Graduate Certificate in Mission and Catholic Culture is designed for professionals in Catholic institutions of higher education and faith-based organisations and agencies who wish to enhance their understanding of the specifically Christian and Catholic context in which they are leaders, and to develop skills in the promotion of a Christian and Catholic culture.
The purpose of this course is to support and assist personnel within Catholic and other faith based organisations to acquire the factual and experiential knowledge through readings, reflections and discussions. This supports development in the conceptual and analytical capabilities required to reflect on and to realise personal and organizational mission alignment.
