Mission Statement

The MTh Program at the Saint John of Damascus Institute of Theology (IOT) promotes research to a higher level, and contributes to academic dialogue and exchange with the various expressions of Christian Theology in our times. It offers to talented students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge in the main theological fields, with the aim to prepare them to address thoroughly contemporary pastoral challenges, and to express Antiochian Orthodox Theology in modern society. Special emphasis is given to enhance theological research and publication in the Arabic language.
