The 信仰学期 program makes it possible for students from other colleges to study at 希腊的大学. 学生 enrolled in the program continue to earn credits toward their bachelor’s degrees while also exploring their faith more deeply through theological study and daily worship on our campus. 信仰学期 students are welcome and encouraged to participate in all other dimensions of our 希腊的大学 community as well.
信仰学期 students can select from a variety of classes, including Iconography, 拜占庭唱, Byzantine Art and Architecture, 文学 of Vocation, 世界宗教, and Introduction to Orthodoxy. Offerings in Classics, 教育, 历史, 文学, Management and Leadership, 哲学, 心理学, and Theology are also available.
With assistance from the Advising and Mentoring Program and the Registrar, students are able to create schedules that reflect their specific interests. Assistance is also provided to ensure that, 在可能的情况下, course credits earned within the 信仰学期 program can be applied to the graduation requirements of a student’s home institution.

“My 信仰学期 was an amazing experience! The semester that I spent at 希腊的大学 allowed me to form lifelong friendships with wonderful people who shared the same faith as myself. I was also able to explore all the classes I had always wanted to take, 比如哲学, Introduction to Orthodoxy, 拜占庭圣歌! It was also very spiritually formative to be able to attend Chapel every day and learn from great professors. Attending the 信仰学期 actually changed the course of my life! After taking a philosophy class at 希腊的大学, I returned to my home university and switched my major to 哲学. Now I am back at 希腊的大学 圣十字 earning my master’s degree in Theological Studies!”
“My experience in the 信仰学期 program was nothing short of life-changing. From the moment I walked onto campus, I felt a sense of belonging. I received the academic support that I needed and I immediately felt cared for by the professors and Administration who really valued my learning and success at 希腊的大学. I was also spiritually uplifted by the support of many priests and Spiritual Fathers on campus, daily Chapel services, and religious electives available to me as a non-Religious Studies major. I also have formed lifelong relationships and met some of my best friends here. The 信仰学期 is an amazing opportunity that every young Orthodox Christian should consider.”
“The 信仰学期 program at 希腊的大学 has significantly impacted my life in many positive ways. It allowed me to learn and develop in a unique and profound way due to the wonderful community and environment that is present on campus. The program led me to many wonderful lifelong friendships, while also providing the opportunity to pursue my love for music through the 拜占庭唱 program. I enjoyed the semester so much that I decided to stay and complete my degree in the Human 发展 program.”
