TST language courses (French, Latin and German) are for graduate students in Theological, Historical, Pastoral, 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 Crescent East (at the corner of St. Joseph Street).

(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.)
