General Program Electives: 
4 elective half-courses from any of the 6 areas above.

Multireligious Engagement Requirement
At least one half-course (from any area or from among electives) must focus on a religious tradition other than Christianity.

Transcultural Learning Experience
Each student in the MDiv must complete an approved Transcultural Learning Experience (TLE) at any point during the MDiv program.  The TLE may accompany a course from Area VI, Comparative and Contextual Studies, or may take the form of an independent study in Field Education, or may take place during the summer term.  The Experiences have been worldwide, and Huron has funding available to defray the costs of the student’s travel and accommodation, where this is necessary.

The primary purpose of the Experience is to provide each student with the opportunity to develop a wider framework from which to see their identity, community, and context so that they may develop a deeper understanding of ministry.  In order for the TLE project to be approved and assessed, each student must submit a written proposal and self-evaluation to the Director of Field Education, in consultation with the Dean, if necessary.  In both documents, a set of articulated learning objectives for the TLE will be cited that with fulfil the following criteria, stated here as prospective goals:

  1. Does the proposed TLE provide the student with access to the lived experiences of the community visited? Does it express ways in which the student will live among (or close to) members of the community, share meals, participate in worship or other communal practices?
  2. Does the proposed TLE enable the student to learn about different expressions of faith, community, and worship?
  3. Does the proposed TLE demonstrate awareness of how the experience should shape the participating student’s own context and sense of self?
  4. Does the proposed TLE convey a sense of how it will affect the student’s understanding of ministry?

Highly motivated students with a minimum of 12 half-courses completed in the MDiv, with an average of 78% or better, may apply to the MA (Theology). Those completing both combined degrees will be part-time in one degree, full-time in the other.

Combined MDiv-MA students will complete three fewer half-courses (generally elective courses) in the MDiv program (for a total of 27). With successful completion, both MDiv and MA degrees are awarded.

    Master of Divinity Careers

    Through our Master of Divinity program, you will develop superior oration skills, theological knowledge and the character necessary to motivate people towards a higher purpose or greater goal. This program is designed to support students’ pursuit of becoming a religious leader, however, many of our graduates have chosen to use the attributes developed during their time at Huron to follow career paths in a wide variety of other sectors.

    Wherever you want to go, trust you’ll be better prepared to get there with the abilities you develop in this intensive learning environment. From an enriched understanding of cultural differences through to confidence as a public speaker, prepare to become a formidable leader in a world that could benefit from purveyors of positive values, hope and empathy.
