Córdoba, Argentina. The Congregation for Catholic Education has approved the Affiliation of the CEFyT (Centro de Estudios Filosóficos y Teológicos) led by the Claretians in Córdoba, Argentina, with the Pontifical Lateran University.
Through this union the students of CEFyT who are candidates for the priesthood, will gain access to a Bachelors of Theology with Pontifical recognition.
For a long time the authorities of CEFyT had investigated various options to obtain this recognition. This agreement will particularly benefit the students of religious missionary congregations who would have made post-graduate studies outside Argentina.
This affiliation is added to various agreements reached with other universities, such as the Catholic University of Cordoba, which have encouraged several modalities for civil certification of the students.
