Pancakes with MTS/MPACS

Virtual cooking session

Pandemic. Isolation. Stressful politics. Long winter. “Pancakes seem to be the obvious answer,” joked Master of Theological Studies student Christa Van Daele.

Conrad Grebel University College thrives on community, and with all the COVID restrictions in place, staff and students are always looking for creative ways to stay connected.

Deep dive into theology

By Abby Rudy-Froese

Christian Theology, ministry, and the Bible are complex topics that can be studied using various approaches at Conrad Grebel University College. The Master of Theological Studies program offers students three distinct paths to complete their degree: course work, applied studies, and thesis. The thesis pathway is structurally very different from the other two pathways. In the first half of the program, students engage in courses while gathering resources and ideas for their thesis. The second half of the program is devoted to researching, writing, and reviewing their thesis: a 120-page research paper in a specific area of interest.

Most students choose the course work or applied studies path for their MTS degree, but Colin Friesen and Lindsay Ralph want to pursue further education. The thesis pathway allowed them to explore what a PhD might look like. A thesis can be one way to demonstrate the excellence in research that is required to be admitted into a PhD program.

The Body of Christ Has Many Members

Holy bible

Faculty and students in the Master of Theological Studies (MTS) program at Conrad Grebel University College have found that conversations between those with different approaches to Christianity are a valuable learning experience. Class discussions about the Bible, Christian theology, ministry, and church history are all enriched due to diverse approaches to Christianity from both students and professors.
