The ThM program is designed to deepen a student's knowledge of theology and further their preparation for pastoral ministry or for doctoral study. The thesis option (Option I below) is intended to prepare students for doctoral studies and consists of six courses followed by a thesis. The major paper option (Option II below) provides the opportunity for advanced study but does not lead to doctoral studies. This alternative consists of eight courses and a major paper.


Application Notes : (Option I) For admission into the Historical, Pastoral and Theological departments, the applicant must be "competent" (normally proven through transcript evidence of successful completion of a one-year university course or its equivalent within the previous four years, or by passing a written examination) in at least one language selected from among ancient or modern languages necessary for their research. Alternatively, the applicant may be admitted on the condition that he or she will be able to demonstrate competence in at least one of these languages before entering the first year of studies. The ADC Admissions Committee determines the entrance language based on the student's statement of purpose and previous language study. Students must demonstrate competence in a second language before beginning the second year in their Program, with the provision that at least one language is a language of modern scholarship.

N.B. For admission, the Biblical Department requires proficiency (2 years of study) in biblical Hebrew for those specializing in Old Testament studies, together with competence in biblical Greek. Proficiency in biblical Greek is required for those specializing in New Testament studies, together with competence in biblical Hebrew. Competence in one modern language (German, French, Spanish, or Italian) is also required before beginning the second year in the program.

(Option II) Requires language competence as appropriate to the area of study.
