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 and two doctoral programs. Typically, a student already holding a basic degree (MDiv, MTS, MRE, MPS) applies for a master’s program. In the master’s programs (MA and ThM), students focus on specific areas of theological studies. These are the usual path to doctoral studies (PhD and DMin).

The Master of Arts (MA) in Theological Studies is designed for full-time study and to be completed in one Calendar year (12 months). Program requirement include 6 graduate courses, a thesis proposal, and a thesis. Find a full program description here on the TST website.

Admissions are handled by TST: you must make a Graduate Degree program application through the Graduate Center for Theological Studies (GCTS) at the Toronto School of Theology (TST). Application, Admissions, and related deadlines are posted on the TST website at Please contact for more information and assistance.
