Master of Divinity
The Master of Divinity Degree (M.Div.) is the standard professional degree that prepares women and men for ordained ministry. Knox College is open to students of any denomination who wish to study for the M.Div.
Presbyterian Church in Canada students study either for ordination to the ministry of Word and Sacrament or for designation to the Order of Diaconal Ministry.
Knox College believes strongly in the importance of a relevant and contemporary theological curriculum that will meet the changing needs of the multicultural and intergenerational congregations that comprise the PCC today and in the future. Our outcomes based education ensures that students not only receive a clear understanding of the expectations that will be placed upon them as they further their call to ministry but also develop the skills of mind and heart required to be dynamic and engaging leaders within the church. As well as enhancing traditional expectations concerning biblical and theological knowledge, these outcomes measure competencies in the areas of Christian living; cultural and theological understanding; professional knowledge relating to problem solving and conflict resolution; and moral and spiritual growth. All students must meet each outcome to graduate (including a Biblical language, a year-long congregational placement and a 7-day inter-cultural course at to the Seminario Evangelico de Teologia in Matanzas, Cuba).
