The Chair’s staff and lecturers participate in various local and international conferences, seminars and research projects in the field of philosophy, theology and the philosophy of science, involving in this work the Ss Cyril and Methodius School’s doctoral seekers and post-graduate students. It publishes theological articles in Russian and foreign magazines on a regular basis and participates in the preparation of materials for the Inter-Council Presence. The Chair ensures appropriate academic advice for students’ writing Candidate’s and Doctor’s theses on Theology and participates in preliminary defences of theses, making an academic conclusion as to the extent of competence shown by them in their dissertations. It also participates in giving the entrants an examination on theology.
