About Us

Welcome to St Athanasius College (SAC). Founded in 2001, and accredited in 2011 as a member college of the collegial University of Divinity, SAC is a Coptic Orthodox theological college that offers units in theology, biblical studies, ancient languages, missiology, philosophy, religious education, ethics, counselling, and Coptic Studies, and many of the units are taught from an Orthodox perspective.

From the Principal

It was first in the sea-side port of Alexandria that Greek philosophy met Christian thought and it can be argued that it was there that theology bore its first fruits. Theological enquiry, the search for God’s truth and purity of Dogma are values dear to the heart of the Coptic Orthodox Church.

St Athanasius College brings this yearning for the knowledge of God to Melbourne and the world.

STUDY

We have a range of courses on offer, whether you’re a VET, undergraduate or postgraduate student. If, however, you’d like to engage with lectures and classes without undertaking a full course, you can audit individual units. See our ‘individual units of study’ for more information.
