Theology Mission Statement & Mandate

The mission of the Faculty of Theology is to provide theological education of the highest standards through its undergraduate, professional, and graduate degree programs, and through its non-degree and continuing education programs.

All academic programs in the Faculty of Theology form and empower leaders to serve faith communities, the university, and society in Canada and abroad by preparing them to be resourceful, adaptable, compassionate, informed, imaginative, and generous people. 

Building on these foundations, each Faculty of Theology degree program has distinct purposes and desired outcomes:

Huron’s Bachelor of Theology program promotes educational excellence in theology and religious studies, while complementing Huron’s other programs in Arts and Social Science.

Huron’s Master of Theological Studies program provides post baccalaureate professional education to people of diverse faith traditions, preparing them for positions of leadership and responsibility in society.

Huron’s Master of Divinity program fosters a knowledge and love of God, personal, spiritual, and vocational development, and the competencies needed for faithful and creative leadership in the churches of the Anglican Communion, churches of other denominations, and in a variety of other ministry settings.

Huron’s Master of Arts (Theology), as a program located in Western’s School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, is dedicated to excellence in graduate education, providing advanced knowledge in theology and related fields, fostering intellectual curiosity, and enabling research to the benefit of society.
