Prof. Mons. Lucio Ruiz

The School of Institutional Social Communications at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome offers a graduate program built around a fresh approach to an age-old challenge: how can the Catholic Church best express its unique identity as both a human institution and a divine mystery?

The program, which is open to both lay and clerical students, grants licentiate and doctoral degrees. It is designed to equip students with a profound theological vision of the Church and a firm grasp of the latest communication strategies and technology. In this way, working in dioceses and ecclesiastical organizations throughout the world, they can transmit that vision effectively to all members of society.
