The Newman Institute for Catholic Studies, established in 2001, is a private non-profit academic institution specialized in theology, philosophy and culture (mainly art and architecture, music and literature). The institute is conducted by the Jesuits in Sweden, and is indebted for its inspiration to the English theologian, writer and Cardinal, John Henry Newman (1801–1890) and his multi-faceted thought. In the years since its establishment, the Institute has offered a significant number of courses on theological, philosophical and cultural subjects. A three-year curriculum in philosophy, theology and culture was instituted in 2008 and has attracted candidates for the priesthood as well as other students. The faculty of the Newman Institute includes approximately 25 teachers, all academically well qualified. Seven of them are employed by the Institute itself, the rest have their principal occupations elsewhere but teach occasionally or on a regular basis at the Institute. The Institute is closely involved in the publishing of Signum, a respected monthly periodical on theology, philosophy, culture and issues in society that is frequently quoted in Sweden. Mission statements The Newman Institute was established as an undertaking rooted in the Jesuit academic tradition. Its aims are to provide an education that will result in well-informed students, that will enlarge their intellectual horizons and critical faculties, and that will encourage them to develop as human beings and to meet others with an attitude of respect and open-mindedness. In accordance with Jesuit educational tradition we want our students to become broadly educated and to be able to use their studies and experiences to the advantage of their society. The Institute aims to serve Catholic and Orthodox Christians as well as other students interested in the subjects taught.
