The Ecumenical Institute of Bossey has year-round programming
The Ecumenical Institute in Bossey, Switzerland, is the WCC's central means for ecumenical education. It has long formed leaders -- clergy and lay -- for service in parishes, classrooms, and ecumenical centers around the world. Per a 2011 agreement, all Bossey students are eligible to receive an accredited certificate or a degree from the University of Geneva. The ongoing formal programming includes a one-semester Graduate School of Ecumenical Studies, a two-year master of theology in ecumenical studies program, a one-year academic program for a masters in advanced ecumenical studies, a Ph.D. in ecumenical studies requiring up to five academic years, and a summer three-month intensive course in English as a tool for ecumenical formation. Additionally, short-term seminars on cutting edge issues bring together small groups from around the world. See general information on the Bossey web site.
