Study Programs
For individuals and groups wanting to go beyond a pilgrimage program, St George’s College offers a range of more challenging study programs as well as facilities for research. Many of these programs can gain academic credit at colleges, seminaries, and universities, or points for continuing education and professional development requirements. We welcome scholars who wish to use our library or work with the archaeological materials from Tel Dothan in the Benshoof Cistern Museum.

The Edmond & Patricia Browning Library is located on the main floor of the college.

The library is named in honour of the 24th Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church, Edmond Lee Browning, and his wife, Patricia Browning. Bishop Browning died on July 11, 2016 at his home in Dee, Oregon. He and Patricia were great friends of the College and generous supporters of the Library.

The extent and nature of these contributions vary from one person to another, and in each case is negotiated in advance with the College administration.
