The degree of Master of Arts in Theology (MAT) is a theological program of Eastern Christian studies at the graduate level. It prepares students for lay leadership by providing a systematic theological framework and is seen as a necessary prerequisite for future doctoral level studies. The MAT degree program prepares candidates for further study, research and teaching who will be able to:
read the primary sources of Byzantine Catholic Tradition contextually and critically;
employ appropriate methodologies in the study of Sacred Scripture, Dogmatics, Theology, Liturgical Theology and Pastoral Theology;
undertake independent theological research;
engage in clear theological discourse both in writing and in speech;
integrate various theological disciplines and methods into a coherent and relevant vision of Byzantine Catholic faith.
