Regis College and the Toronto School of Theology Announce a New Doctoral Degree

TST expects to open a conjoint PhD degree program in Theological Studies to a class entering in September 2015.  “Conjoint” means that the proposed PhD (in Theological Studies) will be offered conjointly by the University of Toronto and six TST member colleges, including Regis College.  It will be administered by TST’s Graduate Centre for Theological Studies. 

EXPECTED CLOSURE.  Please note that TST’s current expectation is that the conjoint ThD program will be permanently closed to new admissions after September 2014. A new conjoint PhD in Theological Studies (currently undergoing an approval process) is expected to replace the ThD degree program. TST, of course, is strongly committed to supporting all doctoral students to the completion of the programs into which they were admitted.

Please note that this 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.
