Program Overview

In partnership with the Toronto School of Theology, Knox College provides the opportunity for more advanced work in areas of interest to our students. All Graduate Degrees are offered through the Toronto School of Theology (TST), and students are required to register at one of the TST Colleges. (Knox is one of seven TST Colleges.) Administration of the graduate program is a joint responsibility of TST and the particular College. Graduate programs at Knox include two master’s programs (MA and ThM) and two doctoral programs (PhD and DMin).
