St Andrew’s Greek Orthodox Theological College
St Andrew’s Greek Orthodox Theological College (SAGOTC) was established in 1986 by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia. SAGOTC was opened to provide tertiary level education and training for Christian Orthodox clergy, theologians, lay teachers and ministers in order to meet the catechetical and pastoral needs of the Orthodox Church in Australia. It is also intended to be a centre of ecumenical scholarship and learning. As the only Eastern Orthodox theological college in Australia with civil accreditation, St Andrew’s strives to bring an Orthodox Christian presence to the Australian theological scene as a whole.
Every undergraduate degree at St Andrew’s includes the opportunity to study the Greek language. Few tertiary institutions offer the level of support for language learning, as St Andrew’s. Through classes, tutorials and personal study, the student develops knowledge of vocabulary, grammar, form and syntax, enabling the student to explore the meaning of religious texts in compelling detail.
Studying with SAGOTC will give you the necessary education for active ministry in the Church (whether as priests or laypersons), but it will also allow you to work in the many different institutions of their Church. A degree from St Andrew’s can also equip you with a range of transferable skills attractive to many employers.
