The information on this site represents the shared elements of the basic degree programs across the TST federation. Specific information about the basic degree programs should be sought from the college offering the program, as each college sets its own unique curriculum for each program. For information about the admissions requirements, educational purposes, and curricular structures of a specific degree program, reference must be made to the website of the member college that offers the program.
The Basic Degree Handbook outlines common policies and procedures for the basic degrees offered by the TST member colleges.
It is possible to earn two degrees in TST colleges in a combined degree program with some credits being counted for both degrees. The combined programs are administered directly by the colleges. There are three combined degree programs, which can be completed in four years rather than five:
The MDiv/MA is offered through Emmanuel College, Regis College, the Faculty of Theology of the University of St. Michael’s College, the Faculty of Divinity at Trinity College and Wycliffe College. Admissions procedures and program requirements for each degree must be met as stipulated in the TST’s Basic Degree Handbook and M.A. Handbook, though a specified number of courses can be used as credit towards both degrees (see M.A. Handbook 7.2.2; 7.4.1). The joint program requires a minimum of four full years of study (or equivalent). Students who wish to apply for the joint MDiv/MA program while in the MDiv program should consult with their college Advanced Degree Director to determine that they meet the entrance requirements of the M.A. The procedures for admission to the MDiv/MA program are outlined in the M.A. Handbook, paragraph 3.5.
The MDiv/MRE is offered and administered through Knox College, and the University of St. Michael's College Faculty of Theology.
The MDiv/MPS is offered and administered through Emmanuel College.
