Are you seeking to enrich your life and grow in Christian spirituality? Then register for Christian Orthodox Classes at the St. Athanasius and St. Cyril Coptic Orthodox Theological School. We invite all to partake in the fullness of faith. Our Orthodox Students take classes in the spring, summer, and fall semesters as a part of two of our educational Orthodox Programs which are a Masters of Divinity or Certificate of Orthodox Theological Studies. If you have been seeking to start or continue your Orthodox education, now is the time.
The Certificate of Orthodox Theological Studies at the St. Athanasius and St. Cyril Coptic Orthodox Theological School offers a general introduction to Orthodox religion and theology. Our students study various theological topics such as introductory graduate level study of Scripture Church History, Dogmatics, Patristics and Canon law. This program is perfect for prospective students, lay persons, or simply anyone seeking to widen their knowledge of religious and theological studies. However our non-accredited certificate does not provide educational nor pastoral requirements needed for priestly ordination.
But our Certificate of Orthodox Theological Studies is unique. It is first degree in theology, from which a student could advance to a Masters of Divinity degree or PhD degree in theology.
The program is designed to be completed within two years. Students can take classes online or at our Claremont, California campus located outside of Los Angeles.
Our main mission at the St. Athanasius and St. Cyril Coptic Orthodox Theological School is to provide students with a sound Orthodox Education. Join us for your studies and earn your Certificate of Orthodox Theological Studies.
