Prerequisite
RESPONDING TO GOD`S CALL BY BECOMING FULLY HUMAN
Course Description In this third of a series of “Faith Journey towards Social Transformation,” Theology III re-tells the story of the pilgrim people of God – the Church – beginning with Jesus of Nazareth and his work on the “reign of God, with his community of disciples, and the community’s journey through history. The course shows how the community of Jesus’ disciples today proclaims in the words and deeds the liberating message of Jesus by being relevant in its mission of evangelization in the context of the “Church of the Poor”. St. Vincent de Paul is an important figure in the missionary work of the church with the underprivileged sectors of society. From this understanding of a church that is in solidarity with humanity, especially the poor, the course explains the sacrament as celebrations of God’s active presence and as challenges for the Church to give witness to its being a sacrament of Christ’s saving grace and unity in the world. (Prerequisites: TH111E”Searching for God” and TH121E “Responding to God’s Call”; course equivalent in the 2008 curriculum – “Church and Sacraments”)

Course Title: READINGS IN PHILIPPINE HISTORY
Course Code HI112
Credit Units 3 Unit/s
Prerequisite
Course Description Philippine History viewed from the lens of selected primary sources in different period, analysis and interpretation and interpretation. The course aims to expose students to different facets of Philippine History through the lens of eyewitnesses. Rather than rely on secondary material such as textbooks, which is the usual approach in teaching Philippine history, different types of primary sources will be used-written (qualitative and quantitative), oral, visual, audio-visual, digital-covering various aspects of Philippines life (political, economic, social, cultural). Student are expected to analyze the selected reading contextually and in terms of content (stated and implied). The end goal is to enable students to understand and appreciate our rich past by deriving insights from those who were actually present at the time of the event. Contextual analysis considers the following: (i) the historical context of the source (time and place it was written and the situation at the time), (ii) the author’s background, intent (to the extent discernible), and authority on the subject; and (iii) the source’s relevance and meaning today. Content analysis, on the other hand, applies appropriate techniques depending on the type of source (written, oral, visual). In the process students will be asked, for example, to identify the author’s main argument or thesis, compare points of view, identify bias, and evaluate the author’s claims based on the evidence presented or other available evidence at the time. The course will guide the students through their reading and analysis of the texts and require them to write reaction essays of varied length and present their ideas in other ways (debate format, power point presentation, letter to the author of the source, etc.)

Course Code TH121E
Credit Units 3 Unit/s
Prerequisite
SEARCHING FOR GOD IN THE WORLD TODAY
Course Description This course is second in the series of the “Faith Journey towards Social Transformation.” Using the methodology of “see-discern-act/pray,” the course deals with what it means to be truly and fully human from a Christian perspective. This is our way of responding to the invitation of God- in-Jesus whose Spirit is ever-present and active in the world, as we have seen in Theology I. In particular, the course focuses on virtues or good habits in our personal and social living from the Christian understanding of the human person. The course tackles themes like “creation,” the human as image of God, “body and soul” , “male and female,” “freedom, grace and sin,” “the individual and the community,” “suffering and the goodness of God,” and “ultimate destiny.” As disciples of Jesus of Nazareth the virtuous person, and with St. Vincent de Paul as inspiration for a virtuous life, a special feature of this course is the retrieval and revitalization of Filipino and Asian virtues as resources for becoming good persons who are rooted in our cultures and socially involved in our communities. (Prerequisite: TH111E “Searching for God”; course equivalent in the 2008 curriculum – “Moral Theology with Social Teachings of the Church”)

The quest for God in the ordinary, everyday life and historical, social events is testified and narrated in the Hebrew and Christian Bible. The nucleus of God’s story with humanity and the whole creation is Jesus of Nazareth, who Christians profess, is the definitive and unique bearer of God’s offer of fullness of life. Through his proclamation of “the reign or Kingdom of God” in words and deeds, Jesus showed God’s unconditional love and commitment, especially to the “least, the last, and the lost.” This course also introduces the patron saint of Adamson University – St. Vincent de Paul; he discovered the face of God-in-Jesus among the poor and marginalized people. In the process of this course, we are invited to be mindful of God’s presence in our own lives, the lives of other people and of the community of seekers of faith.

Prerequisite
CELEBRATING GOD`S PRESENCE AS A CHRISTIAN COMM
Course Description The course is the last in the series of the “Faith Journey towards Social Transformation”. “Transforming the World with Vincent de Paul” is designed within the context whereby people face new challenges brought about by scientific and technological advancements, along with the issues and problems that these bring to persons, families, communities and societies. As we cannot put new wine into old wineskins, we need new perspectives and approaches to new challenges. These new ways of understanding and new solutions must still be grounded in the values of the Reign of God that Jesus Christ proclaimed, guided by the social tradition of the Catholic Church, and most especially in the spirit of St. Vincent de Paul who promoted what we may call today “systemic change”. Social concerns include globalization and cultures, migration or contemporary human mobility, computer-mediated communications, governance, health and wellness, and the ecological system. Distinct from other courses in the university that teach philosophy-based ethics, this course offers the theological ethical social foundations and principles, particularly the option for the poor and the margins, towards a networked world embraced with charity and justice.
