You want to make a difference? So do we!

Acadia Divinity College equips you to respond to the call of God to make a difference, by providing the fertile ground you need to grow effective ministry. We are located in the verdant Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, the traditional territory of the Mi’kmaq people, and whether you come to campus or study from a distance, our courses will provide the seedbed out of which your practical ministry will grow.

Our programs provide deep biblical understanding, theological exploration, and a clear sense of where the church has come from, and where we are going. We help you to understand yourself better and know God more, so that you will develop a resilient life for your service to flourish. You will cultivate practical skills and spiritual formation, rooted in deep theological reflection for the church and its place in today’s world.

As the Faculty of Theology of Acadia University, the College embodies the biblical and theological heritage on which this leading and innovative public institution was founded. Our presence in a newly refurbished building on one of Canada’s most beautiful campuses reflects our commitment to excellence in higher learning, clearly engaged in the issues of our time.

Our vibrant faculty members are emerging as international experts in their disciplines, firmly committed to the life of the church; our staff reflect passion and excellence for the work they do. Acadia Divinity College is a wonderful place to prepare to respond to Christ’s call to serve.

We welcome the opportunity to help you make a difference where you are, and wherever God will call you in the future.
