Programs of Study
Carey Theological College is a graduate theological college and holds a charter from the Province of British Columbia to grant graduate theological degrees.
Carey Theological College is committed to credible academic scholarship and competent ministry. It strives to maintain a high level of education in providing graduate ministry training. Following is a list of study programs available through the college:
• Master of Divinity (MDiv)
• Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation (MASF)
• Centre for Spiritual Formation (CSF)
• Doctor of Ministry (DMin)
At Carey, teaching and learning take place in various modes, including traditional classroom settings of four or five-day onsite intensives, weekend and weeknight courses, online courses, and hybrid courses (a mix of online and onsite). All courses run for 12 weeks. In the case of hybrid courses, there will be an online component before/after the onsite intensive.
Students are advised to register a minimum of two weeks prior to the beginning of the term and to purchase their textbooks well in advance.
To enhance Carey’s ability to serve a broad range of student learning styles and student work experiences, instructional technologies are used to deliver certain course components. Instructional technologies may reduce travel, boost collaboration, and allow people to learn in different modes. Electronic bulletin boards, computer-mediated class discussions, blogs, videoconferencing and web streaming over the internet are some of the alternative delivery methods that may be used to provide flexibility for students to access theological education.
Guided Studies provide students with the opportunity to study in areas of personal interest beyond those of the established curriculum. Details regarding such courses are available from the Registrar’s office. Such studies may be taken after approval by the Registrar, in consultation with the VP Academic, and the appropriate instructor’s consent.
Required courses will not be offered as Guided Studies, so students should plan to complete all required elements of their program in the modular format or online format when they are offered. Guided studies are reserved for topics in which a student may wish to pursue individual study with a professor and may be used only to fill electives within the academic program.
