It was shown by Neher and Sun in  that, for perfect Lie superalgebras $L_i$, the universal central extension of the direct limit of $L_i$ is isomorphic to the direct limit of the universal central extensions of $L_i$. In this thesis, we extend the result to Hom-Lie superalgebras, first introduced by Ammar and Makhlouf in , and construct the universal central extension of a perfect Hom-Lie superalgebra by defining a $\uce$ functor on the category of Hom-Lie superalgebras. In Theorem 4.2.3, we show that if a Hom-Lie superalgebra $L$ is perfect, then $\uce(L)$ is a universal central extension of $L$. In Theorem 4.3.2, we show that the universal central extension of the direct limit of perfect Hom-Lie superalgebras $L_i$ is isomorphic to the direct limit of the universal central extensions of $L_i$.
