MDiv, BTh, Diaconal Ministry programs

Prospective students who are planning to pursue the ELCIC rostered ministry are required to be endorsed by their synodical Committee for Theological Education and Leadership (CTEL) before they may be admitted to the MDiv, BTh, or Diaconal Ministry certificate programs at LTS.

A bachelor's degree from an accredited university or college is also required for the MDiv program (30 credits for the BTh). See the admission requirements on the MDiv page.

This process is fully outlined in the ELCIC's Candidacy Manual (pdf). The It's Your Call site also provides a useful outline of the application process, especially the "Step-by-Step Outline."


A bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university is a prerequisite for admission to the MTS program. See full application process on the MTS page.


A full description of the STM Programme, its requirements, and its application process can be found on the STU website.
