ThD awarded conjointly by Regis College and the University of Toronto; PhD awarded by the University of St. Michael’s College
Students with an A- average in an appropriate first degree in theology may register through Regis College for the ThD program. After their thesis proposal has been accepted, students may apply to graduate with a PhD as a Regis student from the University of St. Michael's College. The program requirements for the ThD and PhD program in theology are virtually identical; the examination procedures for the thesis are similar.
While the Toronto School of Theology and the University of Toronto are in conversation regarding the establishment of conjoint PhD in theology, the University of St. Michael's College is reviewing its PhD, and has temporarily suspended admissions to this degree. TST and its member schools, including Regis College, continue to accept applications for the ThD program.
Course and language requirements vary by Department. Please see the ThD and PhD Handbook for course units and comprehensive examinations, as well as doctoral thesis and defence requirements. The course of study for these programs requires a minimum of two years’ full-time residence and completion of a specified number of study units.
For more information about the ThD / PhD program and admissions procedures, please refer to the TST website.
All students are required to maintain an electronic portfolio that documents their progress through their programs.
