Programs of Study

Guided by focus on our institutional mission and self-understanding as held within the historical memory and tradition not only of the Seminary, but also in the larger Church, and mindful of the example of Christ Himself, as demonstrated in His calling of the disciples, the Seminary offers two residential programs in priestly formation:

Master of Divinity

A three-year graduate first-professional Master of Divinity (M. Div.) degree program is offered for students who have received baccalaureates and/or higher academic degrees from recognized institutions of higher education.

Field Education & Internship

As an integral part of residential priestly formation at St Tikhon's Seminary, the Field Education and Internship Program concentrates on the practical formation of dedicated pastors and spiritual counselors who will lovingly and courageously shepherd the flock of Christ entrusted to their care.

Cooperative Programs

For the student who may wish to explore or pursue alternative options, the Seminary also offers cooperative programs of instruction.

The Seminary’s institutional relationships with Marywood University (in nearby Scranton) and Northampton Community College (NCC) in Bethlehem/Honesdale permit students to enter cooperative programs with these institutions. Upon attainment of the baccalaureate or its equivalency, the student may elect to continue professional theological study in the M.Div. degree program. The total time involved in the pursuit of both undergraduate and graduate degree options is normally seven years.
