Master of Theological Studies

The Master of Theological Studies program will prepare you for theological engagement and leadership in a variety of settings – and can also provide a good foundation for further study in Theology. You will develop a solid scholarly grounding in the core theological disciplines, as well as knowledge and skills within a particular practical or academic concentration, including Islamic Studies. Students of all denominations and faith traditions are welcome in this program.

Alumni Stories

In today’s complex world, people who are educated to have a deep understanding of different religious, cultural and social practices will distinguish themselves as Leaders with Heart with a commitment to the betterment of the world. Our MTS graduates have gone on to create significant positive change through in religious leadership, but they have also done so in careers you may not immediately associate with theological education.

See where our Faculty of Theology alumni have found their purpose and consider whether your studies could take you in a similar direction. In the MTS, you can explore a variety of theological disciplines and religious traditions in a learning environment that is both challenging and supportive.

  • Huron provided all the financial support possible to make a married, low-income student like myself able to fully take part in academic life. The tremendous teaching and mentorship I received set me up to receive a full scholarship to the University of Edinburgh for my PhD. Without Huron, this would have never occurred.

Professors

Huron’s Theology professors have found their purpose within our university where they have continuous opportunities to inspire students to find theirs. Regardless of whether or not students are set on pursuing career paths that include religious or theological vocations, you will find the professors within this department to be extremely open-minded, supportive and knowledgable.

Meet the educators who are going to help you better understand how religions shape the most influential aspects of humanity, so you can Lead with Heart, compassion and conviction – no matter where your calling takes you.

  • I aim to do constructive theology that draws on the Christian tradition while also intentionally engaging in interreligious dialogue, particularly around justice, ecology, and the arts.
