Things to Note about our OnLine Courses

·         The on-line courses are more expensive, but they are more structured with a defined start and completion date.

·         Secondly the committed professor/instructor is dedicated and available for all the course length.

·         Thirdly, students also have the benefit of interaction with fellow students who are also taking the same course, the relationships and bonds that you will establish could develop into life longer-term connections and support structure in the future. 

·         Statistics show that there is a much-smaller student drop-out rate for this form of course delivery, than correspondence. 

 

We at the Institute have been developing a student  roster:

 

·         First these are the deacons in our church who are required to, or want to take courses;

·         Second are the sub deacons who in their development may become deacons, in which case more theological education will be required  

·         Thurd there are the readers who joined the clerical order and may as they choose develop their education further for the deaconate

·         Then also the courses are available for any lay members of the Church, or interested non-Orthodox who desire to further enhance their knowledge of Orthodox Church teachings.
