AN INNOVATIVE, CONTEXT-DRIVEN APPROACH TO THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY

Benefit from Huron’s rich legacy of theological education and inclusive learning environment, while taking advantage of an exciting and contextually-relevant approach to formation for church and community leadership.

LEARN WHAT MAKES A HURON MASTER’S DEGREE IN THEOLOGY DISTINCTIVE – AND HOW WE DELIVER ON OUR MISSION OF DEVELOPING SPIRITUAL LEADERS WITH HEART.

1

Religion and Theology in a Liberal Arts Context

We are committed to remaining engaged with Huron’s broader intellectual environment. Our close-knit campus, which includes departments that focus on a broad range of Humanities and Social Sciences, means our students have endless options to customize their learning paths.

2

Intellectual Curiosity & Academic Excellence

In the Faculty of Theology, we delve into challenging topics that prepare our students for a wide variety of vocations in ministry and service. We encourage academic exploration and critical thinking, and ensure every student has the personalized support they need to grapple with age-old questions about life, faith, and meaning.

3

Strategically Small Classes that Promote Engaged Learning

Do not get lost in a sea of students. At Huron, you will benefit from small class sizes where you and your peers and professors develop meaningful, lasting relationships. You will have many opportunities for life-changing interaction with fellow students of different backgrounds and faith traditions. These leaders will become your mentors and colleagues.

4

Inclusive Learning Community

Offering theological education for leadership in both the Christian and Islamic traditions, the Faculty of Theology is a diverse and inclusive learning community. Anglican in origin and identity, Huron welcomes Christian students from any denomination – and we also welcome students of any race, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

  • The Faculty is a citadel of excellence and Huron’s longstanding traditions set it apart. I would recommend Huron because of the quality of education it offers, the level of spiritual development it fosters, the excellent professors, and the school’s library − whose staff and resources help ensure students’ success.

WHAT DOES OUR NEW CONTEXT-DRIVEN APPROACH FOR MDIV AND MTS STUDENTS LOOK LIKE?

  • Two ways to learn: on campus or via a virtual classroom from anywhere in Canada
  • Concentrated Tuesday-to-Thursday course schedule to reduce commuting, focus learning, and provide you with more flexibility
  • Dedicated instruction to prepare you to understand and assess the cultural context and social influences that will directly and indirectly affect your ministry or service
  • Leadership and innovation training to empower you to adapt to complex landscapes and encourage the sustainability and growth of faith communities
  • A more intentional emphasis on your spiritual formation – and training to help you foster the spiritual growth of others
  • Intensive on-campus sessions focusing on community building and skill development

This new approach will be supported by our ongoing commitment to intellectual rigour, personal and professional formation, and mutual support. Building on nearly 160 years of delivering superior preparation for ministry and service, we remain committed to the strengths we are known for.

THE FACULTY OF THEOLOGY CONTINUES TO PROVIDE:

  • Generous financial aid provided with a high degree of personalization and confidentiality
  • World-class faculty who command an incredible breadth and depth of knowledge
  • Full access to library resources and Students Services at Huron and Western University – one of Canada’s largest research universities
  • ATS-accredited Master of Divinity and Master of Theological Studies degrees, conferred by Western University

Professors

Welcome to Huron’s close-knit community of faith, compassion and innovative learning practices. Our faculty bring together their global perspectives to create enriching learning experiences for students of every denomination; those who haven’t yet found their faith; and students who aren’t interested in establishing a religious foundation, but are simply curious about the subject matter.

No matter how unique your journey or purpose may be, our professors will help you develop the invaluable skills that the pursuit of a theological degree can endow you with. Prepare to be supported, challenged and engaged by people who have structured their lives around the teachings of theology and religion.
