The VST program at Huron is a 90 credit degree, with a minimum of 45 credits taken through VST. It may be completed in three years of study or up to seven years part-time. The MDiv program combines:
- Off-site (online through Adobe connect) courses through Vancouver School of Theology. Courses are accessed as synchronous (real time interaction with class and instructor) or asynchronous (recorded and listened to online later).
- In-class courses at Huron University College
- Field education opportunities in the London area
Recommendation of Readiness for Ministry
The granting of a Recommendation, i.e., the certification that in the opinion of the members of the Faculty an MDiv graduate of the School is suitable for the exercise of ordained ministry, is the end of a process that begins early in a student’s program of studies. Student progress and readiness for ministry is assessed and reported jointly by VST and Huron’s United Church faculty group.
