VST is called to educate and form thoughtful, engaged and generous Christian leaders for the church and the world in the 21st century. 

The Diploma in Denominational Studies: Anglican/United/Presbyterian is designed to recognize accomplishment by a student who has completed a program of study set for them by their respective denomination, The Anglican Church of Canada, The United Church of Canada or The Presbyterian Church in Canada. Normally, the Diploma is given for a program of 18 credit hours or more. A student who accomplishes more than 12 and fewer than 18 credit hours of work that has been set by a denomination will be awarded a Recognition of a Program of Studies.

The Diploma in Denominational Studies is a program that takes two forms:

  1. A course of studies set by the judicatories of a particular student’s denomination that is designed to meet the needs of the particular student.
  2. A course of studies designated by the School that provides a general theological background with courses in the history, theology, polity, and ethos of the historic denominations of the School.

The Diploma in Denominational Studies: Anglican/United/Presbyterian varies in length depending on the program of study set by the denomination for a particular student. However, any program that consists of 18 credit hours or more will be recognized by VST with the granting of the Diploma.

This diploma has onsite requirements.

For all VST diplomas, an undergraduate degree is required. There are two application deadlines per year: March 15th and October 15th. Students can begin their studies in September or January. To learn more about tuition and fees visit: https://vst.edu/students/tuition-fees/
