The Byzantine Catholic Seminary’s research sabbatical for alumni is structured to offer convenience and support. The convenience of living at the Seminary in a community of formation with a complete schedule of liturgical services, food service, and housing in a private room/bath of the Seminary annex provides adequate comfort for necessary academic work. The support of the Seminary faculty along with its library and media services allow for significant research to be accomplished on campus. The nearness of other seminaries and renowned theological libraries provides additional resources. Such will be of benefit to a student working to complete a doctoral dissertation or thesis. Please be advised that the application process to be in residence at the Seminary should not begin until the dissertation or thesis topic has been approved by the institution granting the degree. (n.b. the Byzantine Catholic Seminary is not accredited to grant doctoral degrees). A student may apply to be on research sabbatical at the Seminary for the fall or spring semester or for one entire academic year.
