Association of Theological Schools

The Montreal School of Theology has been an accredited member of the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) since 1989. The Master of Divinity degree is accredited by the Commission on Accrediting of the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada.

The Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS) is a membership organization of more than 250 graduate schools that conduct post-baccalaureate professional and academic degree programs to educate persons for the practice of ministry and for teaching and research in the theological disciplines. The mission of The Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada is to promote the improvement and enhancement of theological schools to the benefit of communities of faith and the broader public.

The Commission on Accrediting has adopted the following standard which reads, in part: "Assessment of student learning requires schools to be able to demonstrate the extent to which students have achieved the various goals of the degree programs they have completed as well as indicators of program effectiveness, such as the percentage of students who complete the program and the percentage of graduates who find placement appropriate to their vocational intention and theological education."
In accordance with the Commission's request that schools publish a statement of their educational effectiveness, the Montreal School of Theology is happy to publish the following data.
For the years 2007-2011 inclusive:
graduation rate: 80% of those who began M.Div. studies.
career placement rate: 96.67% of graduates within one year of graduation.
These data represent the combined graduation and career placement rates of the three member colleges.

Degree-granting authority

In virtue of their respective charters, each of the member colleges of the Montreal School of Theology has authority to grant the Master of Divinity degree. In practice, however, none of the colleges exercises its right to grant the degree independently of the concurrence of the other two colleges. This concurrence is guaranteed through the cooperation of the colleges in the Montreal School of Theology. The Montreal School of Theology functions as the administrative body through which the colleges work together in the design, delivery and assessment of the educational program that leads to the M.Div. degree. It is, therefore, the Montreal School of Theology that determines whether a student has successfully met the requirements for the M.Div. degree. MST informs the student's college to that effect. The college then approves the awarding of the degree to its own student(s) and concurs with the awarding of the degree to students of the other colleges.
