Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
Students who have completed a first degree prior to the B.Th. with a minimum CGPA of 2.7 are eligible to apply the B.Th. degree toward the Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree conferred by the Theological Colleges. This degree requires, in addition to the B.Th. degree, successful involvement in integrative seminars during the two B.Th. years and a year of professional pastoral study beyond the B.Th. This is called the “In-Ministry Year” (IMY) and is offered by the three affiliated Theological Colleges under the auspices of the Montreal School of Theology.
Students from the affiliated colleges may be eligible for bursary assistance if they are properly registered candidates for the ministry. Information about church requirements and the professional year should be sought from the principals of the appropriate colleges.
One biblical language, usually Greek, is required by some of the colleges. Ministerial candidates should consult with the College advisers regarding biblical language requirements.
Prospective candidates for ordination with a B.A. Honours or Major in Religious Studies and a CGPA of 3.3 (B+) may apply for the Master of Sacred Theology (S.T.M.) degree, followed upon completion by the professional year (IMY).
Applicants for the M.Div. program must apply to the McGill B.Th. program as well as to one of the Theological Colleges. College application forms should be requested from one of the following:
Prospective students should contact the Chair of the B.Th. Committee to discuss their qualifications, expectations, and objectives. Appointments can be made by emailing Professor Douglas Farrow at douglas [dot] farrow [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
