TST language courses (French, Latin and German) are for graduate students in Theological, Historical, Pastoral or Biblical Studies or related disciplines who require reading knowledge in a research language. Students learn the fundamentals of grammar and vocabulary required for translation and reading comprehension. All courses are conducted in English, and assume no previous knowledge in each language.

These courses fulfill TST’s advanced degree admission and program language requirements. Courses are non-credit and not accessed on ROSI. Course offerings are subject to minimum enrolment.

Courses will be held at the TST Building, 47 Queen’s Park Cr. E. (at St. Joseph St.)

One way of meeting a language requirement for an Advanced Degree program is to write and pass an examination set up by the Advanced Degree Office. Language exams in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Hebrew and Latin are offered two times per year, in September and January. A passing grade for the exams is 70% (in the Biblical department, the departmental and expertise exams are administered by the department, and have higher exam grade requirements. Please see the program handbook for more information).
