Agora is where antiquity meets modernity
We strive to engage with and addresses the challenges of the contemporary world through ancient Eastern Christian wisdom
Message from our Chairman
We don’t just challenge modern concepts—we redefine them. The world-class education done at Agora University is hallmarked by rigorous investigation, in-depth discovery, and theologically-driven problem solving. Explore the ways we highlight our Orthodox tradition in a rapidly evolving world.
The keyword in our organization is “Community”
Agora University strives to maintain a close relationship between students and staff. Many members of our faulty are involved in discipling students during the academic years. Faulty members encourage students as they grow in their personal devotions, discuss things they are learning in class, and challenge them in areas where the student may be struggling. Students have ready access to any staff or faculty member and are encouraged to seek help both academically and spiritually.
We believe the true value of education starts with experience and praxis, actualizing theory into a life-style of communal mission and service.
By participating in our activities and experiencing the depth, diversity and modernity of Early Christian thought, it will equip those with a desire to fulfill the Great Commission of Christ (Matthew 28:16) to the world of today.
My experience so far at Agora has truly enriched my knowledge and spiritual life. It has allowed me and taught me to how to bring theology into everyday life. It has equipped me with the skills to be able to research and write on various contemporary topics through the lens of the Orthodox Church. Agora has enabled me to be courageous and engage with difficult contemporary issues through discussions with others. It has made me confident in being challenged in my understanding of the world and God. Through the various discussions had at the school, it has taught me the importance of allowing others free space when discussing and debating various topics.
I have been a student of Agora University for over a year now, and it has challenged and inspired me to grow in my knowledge and love of theology and of the humanities as a whole. My thinking on subjects I’ve studied has matured as I’ve been exposed to rich academic material and profound insight from the teaching staff. HTC provides a free and open place to exchange thoughts and ideas and for students to come to their own conclusion about topics discussed, all the while given guidance and direction from supervisors. It is an outstanding organization that has my highest endorsement and I am delighted to be named among their first students!
Being a student at Agora University has really had an impact on my life both on an academic and intellectual level but also on a spiritual level. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and take the time to help students like myself process the information and break down hard concepts to better grasp them. Every question I ask is always explained and professors don’t just give us the answers but really help us to come to the answers ourselves. The readings and assignments have been really helpful in expanding my own understanding of God and theology. It has enhanced my spiritual life and given me an opportunity to deepen my relationship with God. I am extremely thankful to the staff and professors at AU for their dedication to helping students link theology with the humanities which is such a practical and needed skill in this day and age.
See why Orthodox education at this pioneering university is so valuable for life after graduation.
