Does anyone here have any experience with attending a seminary for the purpose of graduate study? In other words, without the intention of entering the priesthood?
I know that Holy Cross and St. Vladimir's both offer programs along those lines....are there any other seminaries or institutions worth looking into?
If you wish to enter the priesthood and want to study in this country, your options are limited: Holy Cross and St. Vladimirs, St. Tikhon's, St. Herman of Alaska (in Alaska), Christ the Saviour (Johnstown, PA - ACROD) and the Serbian Seminary near Chicago are the ones I know of. Each school will take students from any jurisdiction, but your jurisdiction may have a preference as to where you go (because of differences in the way the services are done, supplementary languages, music, etc.).
HC and St. Vlad's are the biggest and best-known of the Seminaries. Each one has its pros and cons.
The others are smaller and will provide a distinctly different environment.
