Take the opportunity to deepen your knowledge through courses toward the new pre-degree diploma program, the Licentiate in Theology.
This is a pre-degree diploma program intended for those who take seriously a call to Ministry while recognizing that "Ministry" is manifested in many diverse yet equal ways. For example, the LTh may be:
for your personal development,
to deepen your knowledge for discipleship, or
for those contemplating Ordained Ministry, or
for those preparing for Diaconal Ministry, or
for those already engaged in Ministry who are seeking to complement their education.
Courses in the LTh program are also available individually to clergy and lay people.
By entering into agreements with other theological educational institutions, Huron has ensured that students across Canada, and across denominational traditions, will have a full range of course options.
