SHORT HISTORY OF OUR INSTITUTION
The Don Bosco Center of Studies stands on a four hectare lot in the suburbs of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. It was originally established in 1972 as a residence for Salesian candidates to the priesthood who were studying theology at the Ecclesiastical Faculties of the Pontifical University of Sto. Tomas, Manila.
With the decree of the Sacred Congregation for Catholic education, the DBCS was granted affiliation to the faculty of Theology of the Universita Pontificia Salesiana, Rome, for an experimental period of five years, thus enabling it to grant the degree of Bachelor of Theology. With the letter, dated 12 April 1992, Addressed to the Rector Manificus of the UPS, the DBCS requested for a renewal of affiliation.
