St Athanasius College Prospectus 2022


Welcome to St Athanasius College (SAC). We are a Coptic Orthodox theological college offering units in a variety of disciplines that are taught from an Orthodox perspective. SAC embraces all those who wish to learn about Christian heritage and Orthodox teachings as either full-time or part-time students. Offering undergraduate and postgraduate awards as well as HDR, we support local and international students as they journey towards a deeper understanding of Orthodox Christianity and spirituality, thus helping them grow in their faith as they prepare for diverse fields of ministry.

Christian fellowship, liturgical worship and learning are at the heart of our community. SAC provides a supportive learning environment nurturing spiritual growth and cultivating the gifts of each individual. The College equips students with the ministry skills and confidence to serve in the priesthood and religious life, as well as prepares lay people to serve in various roles in mission and ministry such as religious educators, youth leaders, and counsellors. Classes are delivered in both online and blended modes, and the face to face components take place at either our Donvale campus located at 100 Park Road, or at our city campus that is located at 285 La Trobe Street in Melbourne’s CBD.

Our College is named after St Athanasius who was the 20th patriarch of Alexandria and is known as the great pillar of Orthodoxy and defender of the Scriptural doctrine of Christ. We strive to follow in his footsteps by preserving the Gospel truth now and for future generations.

We invite you to explore our study options and become part of our SAC community.
