Master of Theological Studies (MTS) – Salvation Army Studies

Offered in Collaboration with Tyndale University College and Seminary

Booth University College, through its School for Continuing Studies, and Tyndale University College and Seminary have partnered in the offering of a Master of Theological Studies (MTS) Degree in Salvation Army Studies. This Tyndale-based graduate degree is accredited with the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) in the United States and Canada. The widely-recognized accreditation status facilitates eligible graduates in pursuing advanced degrees as well as transferring courses to other seminaries in North America. Graduates will receive their degree from Tyndale and a Certificate of Expertise in Salvation Army Studies from Booth University College.

The MTS can be taken completely online, however, courses will be offered in a variety of delivery formats to enhance accessibility and flexibility. Residential courses will also be offered at Booth University College in Winnipeg, at Tyndale in Toronto, and possibly at other locations.

Salvation Army Specialization

This unique degree, jointly designed by Booth University College and Tyndale Seminary, is a specialized, contextualized graduate theological degree. It is the only graduate theological program in the world to offer a specialization in Salvation Army studies.

The Salvation Army specialized courses, designed and delivered by Booth UC’s School for Continuing Studies faculty, are rooted in the Army’s 150-year history of meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in society. Scholars and practitioners from the Salvation Army tradition will guide your studies in the history and theology of The Salvation Army and its Wesleyan heritage. Gain a deeper understanding of The Salvation Army within the broader church while you analyze social and moral issues and explore the global mission of the Army in today’s world.
