Graduate studies

Conrad Grebel University College offers two Masters level graduate programs.

The Master of Theological Studies (MTS) is a two-year degree offered jointly by Grebel and the University of Waterloo. The MTS program is focused on a study of Christianity and the mission of the Christian church in the world, and is offered from an Anabaptist/Mennonite perspective, within an ecumenical context. It is designed for those who may be exploring vocations of ministry and service, those preparing for pastoral ministry, chaplaincy, or further graduate studies, and those seeking personal enrichment.

The Master of Peace and Conflict Studies (MPACS) program empowers students with the knowledge, research, and practical skills needed to contribute to nonviolent peace-building efforts locally and globally. MPACS places a unique focus on the pivotal role that individuals within civil society play as catalysts for peace. The MPACS degree is conferred by the University of Waterloo.

Both MTS and MPACS programs accept full-time and part-time students.
