TST language courses (French 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).

TST Language Examinations

One way to meet a language requirement for an AD program is to write and pass an examination administered by the GCTS Office. Language exams in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Hebrew and Latin are offered two times per year, in September and January. The next session will be announced shortly.

Sample exams are available below in PDF form.

The language exam fee is $30, which covers the cost of administering and marking the examination.

Please phone 416-978-4050 or email the GCTS Administrator if you have any questions about the exam process.

NOTE: Greek, Hebrew and Latin requirements can also be met by passing TST Greek, Hebrew and Latin courses. See the Course Catalogue for course offerings.
