International Students

St. Andrew’s College is a theological school of The United Church of Canada which prepares students for ministry in a variety of ways.

St. Andrew’s College seeks to proclaim and embody Jesus Christ’s message of compassion, justice and hope in a radically inclusive way by working in a Prairie context and in partnership with others to prepare persons for Christian leadership, ordered and lay.

As a post-graduate school St. Andrew’s College offers degrees of Master of Divinity (4 years) for people pursuing ordained ministry, Master of Theological Study (2 years) which provides a solid theological foundation for life or for work in society or the church or further study and Master of Theology (2 years), an academic master’s degree used for continuing education or as a stepping stone toward doctoral studies and allowing for specialization in a particular field of study. The Doctor of Ministry with a focus on Rural Ministry and Community Development is a professional degree designed for students who are in an active ministry context while they study.

The 37-credit Master of Theological Studies (MTS) degree in Pastoral Studies for International Partners allows persons with previous theological studies to obtain a Canadian Master’s degree without having to transfer credits from previous work. It is useful to international students from partner churches who are already ordained and are seeking admission to the ministry of The United Church of Canada. Visit the MTS Program page for more information.

Students with a Grade 12 education but without post-secondary education may inquire about the new Dual-Degree Bachelor of Theology-Master of Divinity (5 ½ years) program. This degree offers a program of study and formation for ordained ministry. In order to apply students must first apply to and be accepted into an undergraduate degree program at a recognized university, normally the University of Saskatchewan.

St. Andrew’s College also offers the courses necessary for ordained ministers from other denominations to receive admission to the ordered ministry of The United Church of Canada.

All international students must meet the English language requirements before beginning their studies at St. Andrew’s College. Please see the requirements in the PDF below.
