Admission and application

What will you learn

The pre-master in Orthodox Christianity provides students with an introduction to Orthodox Christianity as it is lived in its rich diversity. The programme focuses on what is shared by the Orthodox of both families: the ‘Eastern Orthodox’ (Greek, Slavic, Arabic, Romanian etc. traditions) and the ‘Oriental Orthodox’ (Armenian, Coptic, Syriac, Ethiopic and Eritrean traditions). Students will gain basic knowledge about how one of three main forms of Christianity understands its faith and practices. The students will study Orthodoxy in its own right, instead of highlighting the differences with the other two forms of Christianity (Roman Catholicism and Protestantism).
