Continuing your education

Huron's Faculty of Theology offers the MA (Theology) for students interested in pursuing a graduate Master's degree with an emphasis on the integration of theological vision and the theological disciplines. You may also be interested in the Faculty of Theology's undergraduate formational and academic degrees (MDiv and MTS), as well as a wide variety of continuing education, non-credit, and diploma offerings, such as the Licentiate in Theology.


Licentiate in Theology (LTh) Diploma
Lectures & Non-Credit Courses & DLM
University-Level Theology Courses

Deepen your knowledge of faith with each course your complete in this pre-degree diploma program. Courses in the LTh program are also available individually to lay people and clergy, outside the LTh stream.

By entering into agreements with other theological educational institutions, Huron has ensured that students across Canada, and across denominational traditions, will have a full range of course options. This is a pre-degree diploma program intended for those who take seriously a call to Ministry while recognizing that "Ministry" is manifested in many diverse yet equal ways.  For example, the LTh may be:  

  • for your personal development,  
  • to deepen your knowledge for discipleship, or 
  • for those contemplating Ordained Ministry, or 
  • for those preparing for Diaconal Ministry, or 
  • for those already engaged in Ministry who are seeking to complement their education. 

Course Requirements:

A total of 16 courses, with an overall average of 65%, will be needed for successful completion of the LTh. The courses will usually run for 6 weeks at 2-3 contact hours per week; however, on-line and intensive courses will also be offered.   
Of the 16 courses, you will need to complete: 

  • 2 in the core area of Theological Studies 
  • 2 in the core area of Sacred Texts 
  • 2 in the core area of History of Religion 
  • 10 Electives

Admission Requirement:   Applicants must hold a secondary school graduation diploma or equivalent.

About Dr. Williams
Dr. Williams is a Welsh Anglican bishop, theologian and poet, who, from 2002 to 2012, was the 104th Archbishop of Canterbury and Primate of All England. He was previously the Bishop of Monmouth and Archbishop of Wales, making him the first Archbishop of Canterbury in modern times not to be appointed from within the Church of England.   Williams spent much of his earlier career as an academic at the universities of Cambridge and Oxford successively. He speaks three languages and reads at least nine.[4]

About the R. T Orr Lecture Series
Since November 25, 1970, the R. T Orr Public Lecture series has been held each year in memory of Mr. Robinson T Orr, the son of a prominent London and London Township family of five generations, a successful businessman, an active layman in the Anglican Church, a staunch supporter of Huron University College, and a man of outstanding qualities.  Mr. Orr was a Lifetime Honorary Member of Huron's Corporation.

Through the R. T Orr Lecture, supported out of the legacy left to Huron by Mr. Orr, it has been possible for the College to bring to London scholars of international reputation and outstanding theological educators.  Some past lecturers have been Premier Clyde K. Wells, Walter Wink, Michael Coogan, Adela Yarbro Collins, E. P. Sanders, John Dominic Crossan,Walter Brueggemann, and N.T. Wright.
