Distance Learning

Students Studying

Live outside of Toronto? Want to combine work, family and study? Looking for flexibility? Online courses are for you.

Every semester, including the summer, we offer three online courses.


Start and Duration of Online Courses

  • Attend the class when you want. You don’t have to worry about start times.
  • In the Fall and Winter semesters, online courses last the same amount of time as on-site courses.
  • In the Summer semester, online courses last for eight weeks.


Teaching Methods

You’ll find online classes are similar to on-site ones and usually involve the following:

  • Readings
  • Class notes
  • Video
  • Audio
  • Discussion forums
  • Online submission of assignments


Available Online Courses

Although not all of our courses are available online, there's a wide variety available. In fact, you can receive a Master of Theological Studies entirely online.

Getting Mobile Course Notifications and Updates

Download the Blackboard Mobile Learn app to receive course notifications and updated course content on your mobile device. The app’s dashboard gives you the latest information on all of your courses in one convenient spot.


Auditing Online Courses

Auditing a course means you can sit in on class lectures and discussions, but you don’t do the assignments and you won’t be graded.

You can audit an online course once students taking a course for credit are accommodated. That means, as an auditor, you may be placed on a waiting list.
