Remote Learning for Seminarians and Clergy
During this surreal time, our academic program remains fully active and classes remain in session. Although our students are not physically present on campus, they are taking their classes and instruction remotely at St. Nersess and St. Vladimir’s Seminaries. Both institutions are providing a normal daily schedule through online platforms. The students and dean have also begun conducting daily worship services remotely.
Our students and distance learners continue to take the following classes, remotely, with faculty during this Spring semester:
St. Nersess Armenian Seminary
Armenian Public Speaking
Classical Armenian Readings in Cosmology
Armenian Church History and Fathers
Armenian Church Architecture
St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary
Origen of Alexandria
Biblical Languages, Greek
Pastoral Care for Immigrant and Ethnic Communities
The Orthodox Canonical Tradition: Church Structures and Sacramental Life
Themes in Patristic Theology
Introduction to New Testament
From March 23-26, a required course for our seminarians, “The Anthropology of Religion for Christian Leaders,” was also offered remotely to our clergy. Dr. Christopher Sheklian, Director at the Krikor and Clara Zohrab Information Center and member of our St. Nersess faculty, offered a 4-day intensive course from March 23-26.
Thirteen members of our clergy joined our seminarians in remote learning and spirited discussions. The seminary plans to offer additional courses to clergy in the future.
