Theology (MA): Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy

Our Master of Arts (MA) in Theology is an exceptional program of theological studies designed for students not preparing for ordained ministry. Some of the required courses for this program are offered in the evening and during the spring term, making it an excellent choice for commuting or part-time students.

There are two fields to this program: Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy, and Public Faith and Spirituality.

The Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy field is a unique form of therapy that integrates spiritual/religious resources as well as counselling theory into clinical practice. Graduates of this field of study may be able to pursue professional accreditation with external accrediting bodies once both academic and other criteria required by the accrediting bodies are completed. The Spiritual Care and Psychotherapy field is a program recognized by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. The student is responsible to manage their course selection and application for accreditation. This program provides academic preparation but not professional certification. 

Our ecumenical, multifaith and inclusive practice creates a diverse and vibrant community. Students from all backgrounds and faiths are welcome to apply.

Kate Urquhart, RP (MA 2021) says alumni "are well-prepared for the career."
