The Master of Theology (ThM) degree is intended for advanced and specialized theological study beyond the basic degree level. This program is designed to deepen students’ knowledge of theology and further their preparation for doctoral study or pastoral ministry. To accomplish this, two options for the ThM program are offered: Option I (six courses plus thesis) can serve as preparation for some forms of teaching or for doctoral study; Option II (eight courses plus an extended essay), does not qualify a student for doctoral study, but provides opportunities for the scholarly enhancement of the practice of ministry or disciplined reflection on a specialized function in ministry. The degree is offered conjointly by Trinity College and the University of Toronto. Length: Normal maximum is six years.
