McGill University's Faculty of Religion Profile
Established in 1821, McGill
University is an English-language university located in Montreal,
Quebec. The University is recognized as the most
internationally-oriented university in Canada. During the nineteenth
century, several theological colleges in Montreal became affiliated with
McGill University. In 1912, they formed a joint board for the academic
study of Theology, leaving each denominational college to provide its
own professional training for Christian ministry. This relationship
between the colleges and the University led naturally to the creation,
in 1948 of a Faculty of Divinity which assumed the academic functions of
the Joint Board. In keeping with this goal the University Faculty offers
the Bachelor of Theology and several graduate degree programs.
