“In spite of the pandemic, last August we welcomed the largest incoming class in recent memory to the Seminary for in-person, residential learning,” said Alexandru M. Popovici, SVOTS academic and recruitment advisor. “Thanks be to God, we may see another large incoming class in the fall, so I strongly encourage you to complete your application as early as possible to ensure your spot at St. Vladimir’s.”

The Seminary has been able to successfully facilitate in-person education and offer its regular schedule of liturgical services. Seminarians have been able to attend services and community events, experience in-person and online instruction, and have successfully complied with government mandates to protect the health and safety of the SVOTS community. (Click here for more information about COVID-19 protocols at SVOTS.)

In-person, residential learning is expected to continue in the upcoming academic year.

Additionally, next year’s incoming class will be the first to have the option of choosing a concentration in the Master of Arts (M.A.) track. In the fall of 2021, M.A. students will be able to concentrate in General Theological Studies, Theological Scholarship and Research, or Sacred Arts.
