Planning for Future Direction of Advance Degree Programs
Thursday July 19th, 2012
Wycliffe is pleased to announce that planning is underway amongst the seven Toronto School of Theology colleges to shape the future direction for programming. Changes will increase excellence in research and in the preparation of leaders in religion and society. As the TST ecumenical consortium enters its 42nd year of operation and approaches the fourth renewal of the agreement governing its relation with the University of Toronto (UofT), plans include mounting a conjoint Doctor of Philosophy in Theology (PhD) with UofT, strengthening the current Doctor of Ministry (DMin) program, and expanding the Master of Theology (ThM) program.
During this period of planning and implementing new and expanded programs, Wycliffe and the other TST schools will suspend admissions to the conjoint Doctor of Theology (ThD) program after September 2012, except for deferred admissions, with the expectation that this program will not reopen when a conjoint PhD program is established. Admissions to the DMin programs are also suspended as of now, until such time as the re-organized program has been approved.
These decisions do not affect students currently in these programs.
