The Antiochian House of Studies Ph.D. offers the opportunity for non-traditional students to study theology at an advanced level. Rather than treating theology as an academic discipline, it imparts the teachings of the Church as understood by the Apostles and their successors. The purpose of the coursework is to know God as He has revealed Himself in Jesus Christ. Excellent faculty make this Ph.D. program one where gaining a doctorate is less important than the journey.Deacon Timothy J. Wilkinson, Ph.D. Dean, School of Business Whitworth University Spokane, Washington
I’m at the age in life when many people turn their thoughts to retirement—65. I now finally meet the opportunity to study at the Ph.D. level in divinity! The program is fostered within the bosom of our Church of Antioch. After two weeks with Dr. Christopher Veniamin and Fr. Michel Najim, I find myself inspired. My fellow students are God-loving, and dedicated. What a blessing, and what hopes we all pin on the success of this holy endeavor over the years to come!V. Rev. Fr. Patrick O’ Grady, Pastor St. Peter the Apostle Antiochian Orthodox Church Pomona, CA
From a practical standpoint, the program fits the busy life of a parish priest. The courses are designed for those with an intense motivation but also contain the personal touch with individual tutoring by leading professors in the subject area. Yet, it was the spiritual environment that impressed me the most during my first residency. As an Anglican, I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about their faith.Rev. David J. A. Halt, Rector, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Bloomington, IL.
Contemporary theological challenges are the same old heresies that were dealt with by the Champions of Orthodoxy during their times. What is needed is to regain the mindset of the Fathers from primary sources, understanding their keywords, terminologies, and gaining their Ethos. We were exposed to the authentic Orthodox Ethos by our professors who received it in person and by experience from contemporary living saints of our time.Rev. Fr. Mansour Azar, Assistant Pastor St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church Phoenix, AZ
