Eastern Christian Studies
The Faculty of Eastern Christian Studies is subdivided into three sections: theological-patristic, liturgical, and historical.
After completing the Bachelor’s Degree in Theology (first cycle), students are admitted to the Licentiate (S.E.O.L.). Those who hold a Bachelor’s Degree in History may enroll in the Licentiate in the history section.
After completing the Licentiate (second cycle), students can enroll in the Doctoral program (S.E.O.D.).
Those interested in deepening a specific area or in having a general knowledge of the Christian East can enroll in the program of the Diploma in Eastern Christian Studies.
In addition to the Licentiate and Doctoral degrees, the Faculty offers a Diploma in Eastern Christian Studies.
The Diploma in Eastern Christian Studies is a course of study that consists of 12 courses and a final paper. The Diploma must be completed within a maximum of six semesters.
The Diploma is designed for those who wish to have a general knowledge of Eastern Christianity or who want to study in depth a particular aspect of the theology, history, or liturgies of the Christian East (Slavic studies, Near Eastern studies, Greco-Byzantine tradition, Syriac, Arabic, Coptic, Ethiopian, Armenian, etc.).
The personalized study program is developed together with a tutor indicated by the Dean based on the student’s interests.
