Validation of degrees
The years of the Bachelor's and Master's are validated by assignments and exams. Each course is validated by a paper of 12,000 to 16,000 characters, including spaces (Bachelor programme) or 21,000 to 33,000 characters, including spaces (Master programme). An oral exam via Zoom is organised at the end of each semester.
Validation process for diplomas and certificates
Certificate programmes are validated in the same way as the courses in Bachelor programmes. A paper of 12,000 to 16,000 characters, including spaces, is required for each course. The study duration for a certificate programme is 12 months, according to the pace and rhythm of each student, supervised by a tutor.
Master's thesis presentations take place face-to-face in a place fixed by the director of studies. Three PhD-level professors compose the jury. The student, after being introduced by the Director of the dissertation, has half an hour to talk about the research. Then he/she answers questions from the jury who retire to deliberate. The marks and the mention are given at the end of the presentation.
Students receive personalized tutoring. This does not replace the contact with teacher on study-related issues. It consists in educational support and personal assistance to last in the study. Students are required to give regular updates to their tutor and, conversely, tutors invite their students to get into a rhythm of work that allows them to complete their studies without losing motivation. Although virtual, the learning proposed by Domuni provides a regular framework and monitoring.
Domuni Students have access to libraries of Dominican communities and learning centers worldwide. Many of them have online Catalogues of books available to them. This is particularly true of the library of Saulchoir adjoining the Priory of St. Jacques in Paris, the library of the priory of Toulouse, the priory of Brussels and the priory of Kigali ... or highly specialized libraries such as the one of the IDEO at priory of Cairo, the library of the Biblical School in Jerusalem or that of the Dominican studies Centre in Istanbul … The many other centers, partners to Domuni, also have very good libraries, like the Catholic Institute of Toulouse, and they generously welcome Domuni students.
Unpublished bibliographic resources are available on the website of Domuni gratuitously. More than 500 items are available and sorted by themes and authors.
The pedagogy of Domuni does not rely solely on lectures. Interactive seminars are regularly offered for master students. These are research seminars where students work synchronously: the seminars take place at fixed times and all participants study at the same time. This work is an opportunity for a real dialogue research led by a professor. The findings of the seminars can lead to publication in Telos, the journal of the university.
