Programs For Everyone

Current Programs


LTS nurtures and challenges all people for Christ-centred leadership and witness for God's mission in the world.

We welcome people from both Lutheran and non-Lutheran traditions, and people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

Whether you are a new student, lay leader or practicing pastor, we have the program for you at every stage of your journey with God.

Our Current Programs: LTS offers five graduate-level degrees, one certificate and several ways to take an occasional course (for credit or audit). Degree and certificate programs may be taken on a full-time or part-time basis.

MDiv (Master of Divinity)

The Master of Divinity is our basic professional degree. If you want to serve the church as a pastor or in a related professional role, this is the right programme. LTS is supported by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, so we are the place to go if that’s where you see your future. We prepare people for other church denominations too, so it’s worth asking whether we can work with you.

MTS (Master of Theological Studies)

Are you interested in learning about Christianity and how it relates to today’s world? The Master of Theological Studies is the degree for you. The MTS is a minimum two-year (that could be up to a five year-part-time) program that engages Christian thinking with contemporary issues and challenges. This includes a MTS-Diaconal Program and a MTS-General Program in Bible, Theology and History.

ThM (Master of Theology)

The Master of Theology degree is offered through the Graduate Studies Council of the Saskatoon Theological Union. This academic master’s degree is used for continuing education or as a stepping stone toward doctoral studies and allows for specialization in a particular field of theological study. 

DMin (Doctor of Ministry)

A further degree for those who already have a master’s degree, the Doctor of Ministry offers an opportunity to reflect on experience gained in church leadership roles. Our DMin. focuses especially on Community Development, finding ways to connect church institutions to community needs.

Lay Academy

If you’re interested in growing your faith, expanding your knowledge in leadership and service, and learning more about the Bible and being Lutheran, consider participating in a Lay Academy session.

We’re inviting some of the most talented, engaging speakers and teachers to provide education and training to you in a new format within the church tradition.
