Courses in Christian Theology

These course offerings are intended to make theological education accessible to a wider range of students and lay people than the regular programs offered by the Montreal School of Theology. 

A rich opportunity for those:

  • seeking deeper understanding of Christian faith and spiritual enrichment; and/or
  • wanting to pursue graduate theological education without earning a degree; and/or
  • thinking about ordained ministry, but wanting to discern a call by trying some courses first.

These courses are given academic credit at the Masters (M. Div.) level:

  • Each course qualifies for three (3) credits.
  • Credits may later be applied to the programs of any of the partner Colleges of the Montreal School of Theology.

Courses are offered evenings, weekends and other alternative schedules and modalities, such as online webinar.
