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 Zoom) 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, Ontario 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.
