About St Augustine College of South Africa

Founded in 1999, St Augustine is a respected provider of quality, values-based, tertiary education. Apart from registration with the South African Department of Higher Education and Training, St Augustine is canonically recognised as a Catholic ‘university’ by both the South African Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SACBC) and the Congregation for Catholic Education in the Vatican. All of the degrees and certificates that it offers are accredited by the Council on Higher Education (CHE) and the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). Inspired by the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, the mission of St Augustine is to produce graduates who have learnt ‘to think rigorously, so as to act rightly and to serve humanity better’.

In addition to the two undergraduate degrees (BA and BTh), St Augustine offers a full range of postgraduate degrees in the Humanities: from Honours through Master to Doctoral degrees. Fields of study include Culture and Education, Applied Ethics (Business Ethics, Social and Political Ethics), Peace Studies, Theology, and Philosophy. In addition, the College offers a 2-year Higher Certificate in Biblical Studies and a number of innovative short courses for lifelong learning.
