It will be interesting to see how competitive SVS is on their course costs. When I took distance education classes from St. Tikhon's the cost was very reasonable. The Antiochian St. Stephen's Course is also within the reach of most people. When/if we get hard numbers per credit hour, I'll certainly post them.
(OCA) - Saint Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary here is offering the public an opportunity for input into future course offerings, including degree programs and continuing education classes with on-line components.
Through a brief survey, the seminary hopes to collect data about public preferences regarding course offerings in the liturgical arts, missions, ethics, and general theology. The courses will be geared toward pastors as well as lay people seeking certificates and degrees on the graduate and post-graduate levels.
“We at Saint Vladimir’s are considering a number of new programs in order to better serve the Church and to fulfill the goals set forth in our Mission Statement,” said Archpriest Dr. J. Sergius Halvorsen. “The information people provide in this brief one to five minute survey will help us in our process of planning and development. We thank in advance those who will support Saint Vladimir’s Seminary by taking the survey, in our effort to hear the needs of the wider Church.”
