In addition to its two Master’s degree programs, the Antiochian House of Studies (AHOS) offers a doctoral program which was introduced in 2016:
PhD in Orthodox Studies
Blessed by His Eminence Metropolitan Joseph, Archbishop of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, and approved by the California State Bureau of Post-Secondary Education, our Ph.D. Program is the first of its kind to be set in an English-speaking framework in North America. Its general purpose is to train specialists in Biblical and Patristic theology, with the specific aim of transmitting the wisdom and ethos of the Orthodox Biblical and Patristic tradition to our theologians, pastors and educators; who in turn will be better suited to raising the standards of Orthodox Christian education throughout North America, and beyond.
