4 PROGRAM INFORMATION GENERAL INFORMATION Credit Study Basic degrees are professional degrees at the graduate level. Entry to basic degree programs requires a baccalaureate degree, but no specialist background in theology. Advanced degrees, with the exception of the MA in Theology, are post-graduate degrees and an MDiv, MA or MTS degree is required for admission. Application may be made for admission to the MA program on the basis of a baccalaureate degree. The basic degree programs are open to persons preparing for ordained ministry and other forms of service in The United Church of Canada, other denominations, or other faith traditions who wish to pursue theological study at the post-baccalaureate level. The College adheres to the rule of the Association of Theological Schools and the Toronto School of Theology that the number of non-baccalaureate students registered by a college in its basic degree programs may not exceed 15 percent of the enrolments. Only in exceptional situations are persons admitted who do not have the prerequisite undergraduate degree. Non-Credit Study Persons wishing to audit an Emmanuel basic degree course must have the permission of both the instructor and the college. Courses that are audited will, under no circumstance, be assigned a grade, nor will they be considered for credit. Instructors will not mark written work for auditors. Auditors are expected to prepare for classes. They may also participate in class exercises and discussions at the discretion of the instructor. For those currently enrolled in the Toronto School of Theology, the fee for auditing will vary. At Emmanuel College, the audit fee is waived for full-time (a minimum of 3.5 credit courses per fall/winter; and a minimum of 2.0 per summer) TST students. Part-time students will be charged the full audit amount. Please refer to our audit webpage for further details: We regret that the audit fee cannot be waived for University of Toronto students. Advanced Degree students should refer to the AD handbook for auditing procedures. Audit forms can be downloaded from the TST website. Registration to audit a course is not done through ROSI/ACORN, and course audits are not recorded on student transcripts at Emmanuel College. Copies of executed audit forms are appended to transcripts to signify that auditing has taken place. 4

5 EMMANUEL COLLEGE PROGRAMS Glossary of General Terms MDiv = Master of Divinity MPS = Master of Pastoral Studies MSMus = Master of Sacred Music MTS = Master of Theological Studies LCT = Lay Certificate in Theology Colloquium: normally a Wednesday afternoon event or workshop on a topic of relevance to contemporary contexts of theological education and ministry, aimed at curricular goals of enriching College community life, and deepening theological integration, spiritual and vocational formation. At least 1 must be completed in every Level of each program. At least 1 such opportunity will be provided each fall or winter session. Prerequisites: none. Elective (Designated): Electives that must be taken in a particular department, subject or area, as indicated by the requirements of each program. These may be taken at Emmanuel or another TST college as specified by the degree program. See the Guide to Designated Electives. Elective (Open): Electives in any department taken at Emmanuel or another TST college that count toward the completion of the degree program. Integrative Paper (TSX 3090): (MPS) an integrative and summative exercise (paper or project) at the end of Level II which engages the cumulative learning of the program by focusing on a particular pastoral issue or problem relevant to one s area of specialization; to be designed in consultation with, and submitted to, a member of faculty specializing in the relevant area. Integrative Project: (LCT) an integrative and summative exercise (paper or project), at the end of each of Units I, II and III, completed under the supervision of the Lay Certificate Program Mentor. Its purpose is to deepen reflection and invigorate learning through the integration of the audited courses of each Unit with Christian life and experience. Levels I, II and III: refer to the groupings of courses in all programs, arranged to achieve a particular sequencing of courses within the curriculum. Note, however, that Levels do not necessarily correspond to years in a program due to the fact that part-time students can be taking courses in some Levels over several years, or courses in different Levels in any given year. The particular sequencing of each Level is important to the integrity of the material being studied as well as the goals and outcomes of the curriculum as a whole. Prerequisites are also used to govern sequencing within and between Levels. Exemptions from prerequisites are permitted only upon permission of the instructor, on a case-by-case basis, for reasons of prior study or experience. Exceptions in relation to the structure of the program as a whole will rarely be approved upon petition to the Basic Degree Council with the support of one s Faculty Advisor. Orientation: mandatory participation in Emmanuel College s Orientation for all entering students in support of the curricular goals of spiritual and vocational formation, community life and engagement with various contexts of ministry. Practicum with Integrative Project: (MSMus) supervised music ministry in a congregational setting, to be taken in the final courses of Level II, including a summative project or paper aimed at the integration of study, reflection, learning and practice. The student will arrange for the congregational setting in collaboration with the Director of the MSMus program. Prerequisite: permission of the Director. 5

6 Prerequisite: a course which one must complete before taking a subsequent course. Exemptions from prerequisites are permitted only upon permission of the instructor, on a case-by-case basis, for reasons of prior study or experience. Note, however, that permission of the instructor cannot be expected to be obtained in the summer; students may have to wait until September if they wish to register for something requiring special permission. Supervised Pastoral Education (SPE): a year-long or summer-intensive program. SPE is education for ministry under the auspices of the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care (CASC). One may follow two streams of emphasis in this kind of education Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) or Pastoral Counselling Education (PCE). Testamur Requirements: Candidates for ordination in The United Church of Canada must use 2 electives to meet church requirements for ordination (e.g., 1 open elective for a polity course such as EMP 2731 Ministry of Governance, and an open or designated elective for a United Church history or theology course, such as EMH 3570 Issues in UCC History, TXH 3806 Calvin, Wesley, and Canada, or EMT 3412 Confessing Our Faith). Thesis: (MDiv, MTS) two electives in the final level of the program may be used to write an integrative thesis. Prerequisites: demonstrated research skills; an overall average of 80%; an average of at least 83% in each of 2 or more courses in the thesis area. 6

14 BASIC DEGREE PROGRAMS Course Numbering The first two digits of the course number indicate the college offering the course. Basic degree courses are numbered in the 1000 through 3000 range level courses are foundational courses; 2000-level courses are survey courses and may have prerequisites; 3000-level courses are specialized courses and normally have prerequisites. Advanced degree courses (5000- and 6000-level) are for Advanced Degree students only. Course Selection The following points should be observed with respect to course selection: Students are strongly encouraged to follow courses in the recommended sequence. Courses earlier in the sequence help to prepare you for courses later in the sequence. Required courses in any basic degree program must be taken at Emmanuel College, in most cases. Substitutions for required courses, unless they are explicitly indicated on the degree program course checklist, require prior approval of the Basic Degree Committee. Students seeking permission for such substitutions must submit a request to the Basic Degree Committee, using the standard form provided by the Registrar s office. Basic Degree Committee approval is required for courses taken outside of TST under Letter of Permission. A Biblical language (either Greek or Hebrew) is required for advanced degree students within TST students interested in pursuing such work should be mindful of this requirement. The required course in Contextual Education is EMF3020YY, and is normally taken in the second level of the program. 14

15 Master of Divinity Purpose The Master of Divinity (MDiv) program is intended to equip persons for ordained ministry in The United Church of Canada and other denominations, as well as other forms of ministry such as pastoral care, pastoral counselling, careers in the non-profit sector, Christian education and chaplaincy. This program may also lead to advanced degree study, and therefore, MDiv students have the option of writing a thesis. Learning Outcomes Upon completion of the MDiv, graduates will: Religious Faith and Heritage Demonstrate knowledge of the Christian heritage, and articulate clearly their own theological positions.

18 Master of Divinity: Thesis There are 2 types of MDiv thesis, each with a different goal. The first provides the opportunity for a student to demonstrate the ability to complete a substantial research project by undertaking text-based research on a defined body of literature. This version of a thesis has a clearly stated research issue or problem; provides a careful description of the field; and offers a concise analysis that proposes a creative response to the issue or problem. The second provides the opportunity for a student to concentrate on ministry practice by stating clearly the nature of an issue, problem or question; by integrating diverse parts of the program of study in order to understand and explain the subject of the thesis; and by suggesting an insightful pastoral response to it. The thesis should be clearly written, well organized and show evidence of good to excellent critical skills. Ordinarily, students will need to have a minimum overall average of 80% in courses taken at the time of the request to write a thesis, will have completed at least 2 courses in the area of the thesis with a minimum grade of 83% in each, and will have demonstrated research skills appropriate to the subject area of the thesis. Standards 1. The thesis will be 10,000-15,000 words (40-60 pages) including the bibliography. 2. The proposal and thesis should follow standard academic form and style. 3. Grading will be according to the TST basic degree grading scale. 4. The submission date of the thesis is March 24. Procedures to Register MDiv Thesis The thesis counts as 2 credits in the MDiv program. It is to be completed over the fall and winter sessions. When registering for the last credit group of courses for the MDiv program, the student registers the thesis using the course designator TSX3334YY. Near the completion of 20 courses in the MDiv program, the student chooses a subject area (Bible, History, Pastoral or Theology) for the thesis and finds a TST professor (normally from Emmanuel, and not an adjunct) who agrees to act as thesis advisor by April, i.e., a year ahead of completion. After due consultation with the thesis advisor, the student submits to the Basic Degree Committee, no later than May 30, an MDiv Thesis Proposal Form, signed by the student s proposed thesis advisor, along with a thesis proposal of no more than 5 pages, with a preliminary bibliography of approximately 3 pages. He/she includes with the proposal a recommendation for a second faculty advisor. Thesis proposal samples are available in the Registrar s office. The Basic Degree Committee, after examining the student s transcript and upon ascertaining that he/she has the background to undertake the thesis, appoints the thesis advisor, formally approves the thesis proposal and the second faculty reader. The thesis advisor consults with the student through to completion of the thesis. The thesis advisor and second reader evaluate the thesis, and each provides a written report to the student. Each submits a grade for the thesis to the Emmanuel College Registrar, who averages them for the final thesis grade. 18
