Bachelor’s (BTh) Program in Eastern Christian Studies

This is a three-year bachelor’s program which provides students with a solid understanding of Orthodox theology and tradition, and which teaches them how to study and express themselves within an academic context. The program introduces subjects such as Church history, liturgics, ecclesiology, patristics and biblical studies, with a specific focus on the eastern Churches. In the first year students study a series of compulsory courses providing a rich balance of biblical, theological, historical and liturgical courses. The first year is studied in Södertälje. The following two years are taught at Stockholm School of Theology (University College Stockholm) in which time students are able to choose from a range of options and to show a deeper knowledge of one area of interest in greater depth in a thesis.  

Because the program is modular it is possible to delay completion of one or more modules until a later time. This provides some flexibility for those who are combining their studies with working life.
