The impact of the Bologna process on Catholic Education has seen a revision of the Holy See’s programmes of study found in Sapientia Christiana. The Holy See has also promoted and encouraged the work of Quality Assurance and Accreditation while being careful to maintain its final say on internal matters. Guidelines for internal assessment have been established and put in place.
The Holy See has also made significant contributions to the establishment of the “European Higher Education Area” by raising the contemporary cultural challenges regarding the fundamental values and cultural heritage that evolved in the European universities. The Church continuously challenges educational establishments involved in the Bologna process to consider the dignity of human life, the promotion of justice and the pursuit of peace.
