The Tarnów Section of the Faculty of Theology was established formally as a result of transformation of the Institute of Theology in Tarnów. This Institute was founded in 1822 for educating the clergy serving Tarnów diocese and its activities were always strongly connected with the Seminary in Tarnów. Since the communists took control in 1945, the Institute existed only formally, but in fact, it was always identified with the Seminary in Tarnów. Prof. dr hab. Józef Zycinski, who was at that time the Tarnów bishop, transformed the Institute of Theology into the Theology and Pastoral Institute and contributed strongly towards its aggregation with the Faculty of Theology of the Pontifical Academy of Theology in Kraków (1993). Since then, the graduates of the Institute have had the opportunity to obtain the MA degree in theology. Thanks to efforts of bishop Wiktor Skworc, the Congregation of the Catholic Education established the Tarnów Section of the Faculty of Theology of the Pontifical Academy of Theology in Kraków (WTST) instead of the Institute. In 2007 the Tarnów Section of the Faculty of Theology obtained the rights to confer a PhD degree in theology. Since the aggregation of the Tarnów Institute of Theology with the Faculty of Theology of the Pontifical Academy of Theology in Kraków, about 90 to 100 students receive their MA degrees annually. Approximately, half of this group consists of the secular and another half of the monastic. Since the beginning, the number of secular candidates accepted, has always been limited. There are the following profiles to choose: sacerdotal, pastoral and catechetical, social and charity. The scientific journal of the Faculty is an semiannual 'Tarnowskie Studia Teologiczne' (Tarnow Theology Studies). The scientific papers are published in the editorial series: 'Academica' (academic textbooks), 'Quaestiones ad disputandum' (post-symposial materials), 'Rozprawy naukowe' (Scientific dissertations)
