The Diploma in Theology is designed for people who want to experience theological education for personal enrichment or as preparation for future study. It involves the equivalent of one full year of study. Many students do this program on a part-time basis. It is an excellent program to help discern direction for a vocation in Christian ministry.

Courses must be chosen in the areas including: Biblical Studies, Theology, Ethics/Church in Society, Church History, Pastoral Care, Christian Worship, Christian Education, and United Church History, Theology and Polity. A variety of electives are also available.

The normal admission requirement is at least one year of university. For those without that requirement, a skills assessment may enable admission to the program.
