Eastern Christian Studies (Summer Session)Download the program description (PDF)
Since 1987, the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute of Eastern Christian Studies has offered a unique four-week summer intensive program in both North America and in Ukraine, combining study of Eastern Christian theology, spirituality and liturgy with a lived experience of Eastern Christian monasticism or community life. Two courses (each carrying three university credits) are part of the program. Classroom work is augmented by participation in the liturgical life of the community. This may include up to three hours of liturgy a day, along with the fasts appropriate to the liturgical season. There are also field trips, which allow program participants to encounter various Eastern Catholic and Orthodox communities in the region. The program in North America is offered in English. The program in Ukraine is offered in Ukrainian.
