St Augustine College of South Africa is a leader in ethical education. St Augustine was legally constituted under South African law as a provider of tertiary education in 1999.
Although Catholic, St Augustine is neither exclusivist nor parochial. Indeed, at this critical juncture in the growth and development of our society, the challenge is to imbue in each individual – regardless of religious or cultural differences – an unequivocal respect for the dignity of the human person and a determination to build a more just and equitable society that will benefit all. We believe that graduates of St Augustine are uniquely positioned to embrace that challenge. Committed to the spirit and values of 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’.
The academic community – staff and students – that we are attempting to build at St Augustine is one that is ‘characterised by mutual respect, sincere dialogue, and protection of the rights of individuals’; an academic community that ‘assists each of its members to achieve wholeness as human persons; in turn, everyone in the community helps in promoting unity, and each one, according to his or her role and capacity.’
Today, St Augustine offers a full range of degrees in the humanities: from Bachelor and Honours through Master to Doctoral degrees. Fields of study include Education, Applied Ethics, Peace Studies, Theology and Philosophy, as well as a Higher Certificate in Biblical Studies.
