Doctor of Theology (ThD)

The conjoint Doctor of Theology (ThD) program is intended primarily to equip persons for vocations of teaching and research in theological schools, colleges and universities, or for the scholarly enhancement of ministerial practice. The ThD is offered conjointly by the University of Toronto and six Toronto School of Theology (TST) member colleges.

TST is now accepting applications for those wishing to begin doctoral studies starting in September 2015 for the 2015-2016 academic year.

Application to an Advanced Degree program is made by submitting the online form and sending all of the supporting material to the Advanced Degree Office by the stated deadline. Applications are not processed until all materials and the application fee have been received. To request a separate financial aid application form, applicants should contact the TST member college to which they are applying.

EXPECTED CLOSURE. Please note that TST’s current expectation is that the conjoint ThD program will be permanently closed to new admissions after September 2015. A new conjoint PhD in Theological Studies (currently undergoing an approval process) is expected to replace the ThD degree program at that time. TST, of course, is strongly committed to supporting all doctoral students to the completion of the programs into which they were admitted.

More information about doctoral program degree requirements can be found in the PhD and ThD Handbook.
