Что я буду изучать?

The Master of Arts (MA) in Theological Studies is a full-time research master’s program intended to provide students with the analytical skills, methodological rigour and knowledge base that will enable them to carry out research at the leading edges of their areas of specialization. This master’s is a research degree very well suited for those desiring to pursue further research in a doctoral program. The degree is equally suitable for those wishing to pursue further specialized studies toward academic enrichment in their professional careers, such as in positions of leadership in ecclesiastical and related organizations, as well as in the private and public sectors (such as chaplains, teachers, social services workers, among others). The MA complements and builds towards the teaching and research done by faculty in the conjoint PhD program, all under the aegis of the Graduate Centre for Theological Studies, since some courses will allow interaction between master’s and doctoral students. The degree is offered conjointly by the University of Toronto (UofT) and each of the participating TST member colleges, within the framework of the Memorandum of Agreement between UofT and TST.

Program Features

The distinctive features of the conjoint MA program include the following:

It fosters study and research supporting the Church’s reflection on God and the Church’s self-reflection. The theological inquiry of other faith communities can also be supported in some areas.

The program includes some collaborative education for each entering cohort of students, with scholarly interchange across the traditional sub-disciplines of theological studies (Bible, history, theology, pastoral studies).

Courses and research projects intentionally consider interdisciplinary, ecumenical, and global perspectives. Interdisciplinary research is encouraged.

The program further develops attention to issues of method in research and interpretation.

The faculty has the dual conviction that there is a proper and important place within a public university for critical and constructive theological study and that a university setting is essential for the kind of theological study that TST desires to foster.

General Areas of Study

TST’s graduate faculty has specializations in a wide variety of areas of study. Prospective students will identify topics that connect with faculty in specializations within or across these areas:

The study of sacred and canonical texts, specifically, the Old Testament (or Hebrew Bible) or the New Testament (both involving languages; historical contexts and processes of development; related literature; subsequent theological interpretation; pastoral function and social effects).

The study of articulated structures of belief – the structures, contents, premises, and implications of Christian belief and practice (foundational theology; systematic theology; historical theology; theological ethics; and philosophical theology).

The study of the history of Christianity, understood in the broadest sense to include the variety of Christian traditions over the ages and throughout the world.
