The MPhil in Eastern Christian Studies is a two-year degree which is intended to give you experience in reading and interpreting a wide range of Eastern Christian texts in one of three options - Greek, Armenian with Greek, or Syriac with Greek. All students also prepare a 30,000 word thesis. This degree can be a stand-alone qualification or preparation for doctoral research.

  • Greek (Patristic and Byzantine)
  • Armenian with Greek
  • Syriac with Greek

Teaching for each option may not be available in every year and you will be advised of this when you apply.
