General Theological Education
MASTER OF THEOLOGICAL STUDIES
The Master of Theological Studies (MTS) is a two-year degree program in the academic study of general theological education. It is an introductory program of studies that has been designed both to provide a general understanding of the Christian faith and to permit students some focus on themes and issues of personal and social relevance, while allowing for maximum flexibility. The MTS also constitutes a basis for further graduate studies in theology. It may be completed entirely on a part-time basis. The Faculty of Divinity has no specific expectations of its students seeking general theological education in relation to Spiritual Formation, and welcomes full participation by all students in all of its liturgical and community activities.
In addition to completing the MTS requirements, students may additionally qualify for the designation “with concentration in Orthodox and Eastern Christian studies” upon graduation from the Faculty of Divinity at Trinity College provided that a minimum of 12 courses are from courses in Orthodox studies.
CERTIFICATE IN THEOLOGICAL STUDIES
The Certificate in Theological Studies (CTS) is intended to provide university graduates with a general university-level foundation in Christian studies.
The CTS is available with concentrations in Anglican Studies, Orthodox and Eastern Christian Studies, Diaconal Ministry, or Congregational Administration.
THEOLOGICAL STUDIES AT TRINITY
- Part-time studies: All programs in General Theological Studies are available on a part-time basis.
- Commuting students: Students whose homes are a distance from Toronto may commute readily and organize their formal studies on one or two days per week. Some required courses may be done on a reading and research basis. Overnight rooms are available for commuting students.
DAILY PRAYER AND WORSHIP
Theology students in all degree programs are expected to be as regular in their Chapel attendance as they can be. At the beginning of each term, you will be asked to commit yourself to a pattern of Chapel attendance which is both faithful and realistic.
