St. Michael Academy of Eschatology is taking its Treasure to the Internet. We will not miss the unique opportunity we have to share our faith in the new age of communication.
Students will now be able to complete their degree completely online in our new home study program or attend classes at local satellite locations.
Churches of all denominations may offer our classes. Graduate students may serve as adjunct professors in their local satellite classrooms. For more information click on "opportunity."
St. MAE will offer both Fast Track and more traditional time frame courses of study as they become available.
The St. MAE Fast Track program is now complete. Students will take ten courses per degree as follows:
- Associate of Christianity
- Bachelor of Christian Bible (Chaplain's Course)
- Master of Theology
- Doctor of Divinity
The objective of the fast track program is to rapidly and effectively prepare the student for ministry, for missions, for church building, for pastoral leadership and for church planting.
Students of all Christian denominations may participate. The atmosphere is one of ecumenical dialog hosted by an Orthodox Christian jurisdiction in an atmosphere of academic freedom and mutual tolerance and respect.
From the standpoint of authority and authorization, with respect to ordinations St. Michael Academy is under the jurisdiction of the Ukrainian National Autocephalous Orthodox Church in Exile. The first among equals of our bishops is the Metropolitan Archbishop Haralambos. The UNAOCIE is a founding member of SCOBA, through Bishop Ilnysky, the Metropolitan's consecrating line. It was granted autocephaly through the Patriarch Gregorios VIIof Constantinople in his tomos of 1924. This allows our bishops to ordain Orthodox priests and bishops who wish to minister and start churches within our own jurisdiction, (which is worldwide). We also provide training and preparation for ordination for Christians of other jurisdictions. If the student intends to be ordained outside of the UNAOCIE we suggest discussing seminary attendance with the proposed ordaining authorities.
