The Antiochian House of Studies (AHOS) offers distance-learning and hybrid theological programs, a unique feature of which is its Residency, during which students and faculty gather for intensive courses of study at the Antiochian Village Conference & Retreat Center in western Pennsylvania. This beautiful site includes comfortable accommodations, a theological library, chapel, museum, and bookstore.

Students of the MTh in Applied Orthodox Theology and the St. Stephen's Certificate program are required to attend two Residencies during the course of their studies, at the end of August/early September. Most students attend one week each year for two years; but, given special circumstances (economic or otherwise), students are allowed to arrange to attend two consecutive weeks of Residency in a single year. 

 

Students of the PhD in Orthodox Studies are required to attend two Residencies per year for the first two years of the program, each one consisting of a two-week period of intensive courses. The first Residency of the academic year takes place at the end of August/beginning of September, and the second during the second half of May.
