The changes that have occurred within the Catholic education system over the last 20 years have resulted in lay primary and secondary teachers taking increasing responsibility for the religious education of their students. Along with this change there has also been the movement for teachers to have formal qualifications in religious education. These programs in Religious Education are a response to this by Charles Sturt University and Vianney College. The courses have two components: education curriculum and methods in religious education, and religious studies. The aim of the course is to enhance the professional capacities and knowledge of teachers in the Catholic school system.
Students will have access to the libraries of Charles Sturt University and the Vianney College.
