A Unique Collaboration
The Department of Eastern Christian Studies offers a unique form of education – within Sankt Ignatios College – which combines university studies and Folkhögskola in order to provide the training of Orthodox priests, deacons and parish educators.
An Unrivalled Education
At the Department students can study for bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees. The Department offers three master’s programs, in Eastern Christian Studies, International Relations and Ecumenism, and in Religion, Politics and Democracy. Students are taught by renowned scholars and committed teachers, who are not only experts in their fields but who are also involved in the life of the Church.
A Broader Vision
The department works toward the advancement of democratic values, freedom, justice and ecumenical relations. The Department has a strong focus on the ways in which academic study can support and encourage the development of more just and democratic structures both within the Church and in society.
