Regis College and the Toronto School of Theology Announce Bridging Program for Sept 2014 Entering ThD Cohort

Students admitted into the conjoint ThD for Fall 2014-15 will have the option of transferring into the new conjoint PhD by enrolling in TST’s “Conjoint PhD Bridge Program,” assuming  the new degree receives its final approvals. The “Bridge Program” will mimic the new conjoint PhD program, and offer students the same Program Features and Program Structure. Students will thus complete the requirements of the new degree. All students offered admission into the conjoint ThD in Fall 2014-15 are automatically eligible to enroll in the “Bridge Program.” Students with a first registration in Fall 2013-14 are also automatically eligible for this program.

Once the new conjoint PhD is approved (anticipated date: late Summer 2014), TST will contact all applicants offered admission into the conjoint ThD Program (for Fall 2014-15 and Fall 2013-14) to determine whether or not they would like to enroll in the Bridge Program or continue with their initial admission into the ThD.

Please note that the new conjoint PhD program has not yet been approved by the Ontario Universities Council on Quality Assurance or the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities of the Province of Ontario. No offer of admission will be made to the new conjoint PhD program pending final approval by the Quality Council and the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities.  Approval by the Association of Theological Schools is also required.

Regis College is the Jesuit School of Theology at the University of Toronto and a Founding Member of the Toronto School of Theology.

Members of the public interested in theological education are invited to attend an open house in October and March each year.
