Choosing a Program

TST's member colleges offer a variety of degree programs at the doctoral and the master’s level, and two post-baccalaureate certificates.  All are conferred conjointly by a TST member college and the University of Toronto, and a few non-conjoint certificates and diplomas are awarded solely by TST member colleges.

TST’s degree programs are categorized by the level of study.

  • Graduate degree programs require previous theological education 
  • Basic (or first) degree programs require no previous theological study.
