The Master of Theological Studies (MTS) degree is conferred jointly by Conrad 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.

Grebel is affiliated with the Toronto School of Theology and faculty are eligible to supervise graduate students, serve on dissertation committees, and teach occasional courses at TST.

Master of Peace and Conflict Studies

The Master of Peace and Conflict Studies (MPACS) program is a coursework-based, professional degree that empowers students with the knowledge, research, and practical skills needed to contribute to nonviolent peace-building efforts locally and globally. Combining rigourous interdisciplinary scholarship with experiential learning opportunities, the program provides graduates with tools to understand sources of conflict, polarization, and systems of violence, as well as to imagine and initiate transformative peacebuilding. The MPACS degree is conferred by the University of Waterloo.
