|The Post-Graduate Diploma in Anglican Studies program is designed to prepare individuals for ordained ministry in the Episcopal Church who have earned their first theological degree at a non-Episcopal seminary, and/or who have been ordained in other denominations. To be eligible to enter the program, the applicant must be a postulant for Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church and have his or her Bishop's permission to attend. It is a full time course of study and students are expected to participate in the communal life of the seminary by attending worship regularly and having lunch with other students during week days, as well as to successfully complete the required academic course work. |
