The B.Th. curriculum aims at setting up basic academic knowledge, which contributes to the fulfilment of Church requirements, in terms of:

  1. Endowing students, i.e. candidate pastors, with the capability of caring for their parishioners with knowledge and piety.
  2. Providing students with effective tools to meet the cultural challenges of the contemporary world.
  3. Involving students in the intellectual and theological debates which are directly related to the life of the Church.
  4. Offering students the needed training in order to experience pastoral life and launch new pastoral training programs, which will benefit the Antiochian Orthodox Church as a whole.
  5. Equipping students with the required academic tools in order to be capable of pursuing the highest levels of theological education and theological research in foreign and local universities.
