Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Theological Studies
First Year Foundations
This diploma springs from the reality that the Greater Toronto Area is one of the most diverse places on earth. It is designed to introduce students to the spirituality of many of the different religions and faith communities who are our neighbours, leading to meaningful dialogue and new points of connection with other people.
We have been able to keep costs low due to a generous donation from the Scarboro Mission society.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
The Diploma in Interfaith Dialogue may be completed online, with the possibility of returning to in-person learning when the current situation subsides and public health deems it safe to do so. Please contact the Programs Coordinator for more details regarding online completion of the diploma.

We will study Taoist and Shinto shrines, Buddhist and Hindu temples, Jewish synagogues, Christian churches, and Islamic mosques. A global perspective will allow for comparisons and contrasts between Western and Non-Western architecture.

Every religion articulates what makes an ideal human being, but often people with disabilities are excluded. This course explores disability narratives in major world religions, placing disability theologies at the center of religious inquiry. Students will examine the ways ability and disability impact spiritual engagement across religious traditions. Both sacred and modern texts will be used to understand the historical interpretations of disability and the ways religious communities engage with disabled persons today.
Dates: November 9, 16, 23, 30
