Program Goals

At the conclusion of the CTS MDiv program, a student will be able:

  • to engage in critical thinking based in mastery of foundational theological disciplines and methods of interpretation while demonstrating an ability to apply such knowledge critically to new challenges in ways that foster the increase of justice and mercy.
  • to make compassionate connection with others, especially those who inhabit different cultural contexts and those who are suffering in a world stratified by social and economic class.
  • to embody ethical-spiritual integrity in self while promoting it in others, as one develops an authentic embodiment of faith in life through spiritual practices, liturgies, beliefs and wisdom.
  • to undertake concrete strategic action that is spiritually grounded and value-rich to promote the increase of justice and mercy.

Programme Structure

  • Introductory courses are usually numbered at the 300 level. Advanced courses are numbered in the 400s. The most advanced seminars are numbered in the 500s and 600s. First degree students are not excluded from advanced courses, but should check with the instructor regarding their readiness for a particular course prior to pre-registration.
