Admission Requirements

An undergraduate degree or educational equivalent is a requirement for the M.Div.

There are also special requirements for those who are Presbyterian Church in Canada students

Any candidate for ministry within the Presbyterian Church in Canada who does not have an undergraduate degree needs to apply for a special program set by the General Assembly. This is done through the Committee on Education and Reception of The Presbyterian church in Canada. (Ministry and Church Vocations website)

To receive the M.Div. students must demonstrate academic ability and various abilities related to Christian living and ministerial leadership. These are contained in two documents outlining specific expectations or outcomes:
Outcomes for Professional and Critical Competencies
Theological and Practical Curricular Outcomes
