Queen of Apostles Philosophy Centre Jinja | PCJ is an international, inter-congregational consortium established to contribute to the formation of men and women – clerical, religious or lay – who aspire to ministry in the Church.
PCJ concentrates on philosophical studies while introducing students to additional courses like Sacred Scripture, Christian Doctrine, Spirituality, Psychology, Sociology, Economics and other disciplines.
The consortium was the initiative of the Missionaries of Africa, the Comboni Missionaries, the Mill Hill Missionaries and the Congregation of Holy Cross and remains open to wider participation. In 2004, the Claretian Missionaries became the fifth founding member of PCJ. Altogether, fourteen congregations send candidates to PCJ to study today.
The PCJ receives students from different parts of Africa and appreciates the variety of religious, social and cultural diversity in which it functions. The PCJ attempts to respond to the challenges of educating its students in a manner which respects and incorporates the contemporary African situation and its cultural heritage.
Through its affiliation with both the Pontificia Universitas Urbaniana in Rome and UgandaMartyrs’ University in Nkozi, the PCJ offers programs of study leading to a Bachelor of Philosophy degree granted by the Urbaniana or a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, Social Science, or Religious Studies granted by Uganda Martyrs’ University.
There are only four departments namely
