Nature of the Institute
Operation and Structure
Courses of the Aquinas Institute normally meet once a week in a three-hour session, or twice per week in two hour and half sessions. A 3-credit hour course consists of 45 contact hours per semester. In the fall and spring semesters this involves 15 weeks of classes. Summer semesters require meeting more frequently as they are shorter semesters. Appropriate breaks are given during the lectures. Instructors of the individual courses may make other arrangements, but full courses always involve a minimum of 45 contact hours of instruction for a three credit course. The curriculum offered by the Aquinas Institute includes courses in philosophy and theology with themes foundational to the Catholic faith.
