Program and comprise the “2019 Cohort,” which will commence training in Summer 2016. Potential students may explore this innovative residential program that uses distance-learning and onsite intensives by perusing the D.Min. Program page, or by contacting Director of Admissions Archdeacon Joseph Matusiak or Program Director Priest Sergius Halvorsen, Ph.D. for more information.

Applicants for the new cohort may also apply for aid, through the Danilchick Family Endowment for Pastoral Studies. The fund, set up by the Reverend Protodeacon Peter M. Danilchick and his wife, Tanya, will help support qualified D.Min. students with their tuition, through need-based scholarships.

Secondly, the seminary will offer four courses to the general public starting in September 2015, giving non-degree students opportunities to increase their knowledge about the Orthodox Christian faith. The classes, to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, require no prior coursework at the seminary and will cover: religious themes in film, liturgical space and practice, an exploration of the Book of Genesis, and spiritual life. Courses will begin September 1 and 2, and will run for ten weeks; courses may be audited or taken for one academic credit. Details are available on the St. Vladimir's website.
