Hello from Acadia Divinity College
We are the Faculty of Theology for Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and our mission is to equip Christians to serve the mission of God in church and world with transformative impact. We aim to widen access to theological education to all, wherever you are located. That means all our programs are offered both on-site and online, making your education flexible, accessible, and connected to our vibrant community.
What our students are Saying
When I started looking at seminaries, I was already in full-time ministry. I was looking for a school that could keep up with my schedule as a youth pastor, that I aligned with theologically, and that offered Next Gen Ministry courses. ADC’s faculty, affordability, and flexibility made the choice easy. Even though I work and study on the opposite side of the country from ADC, the College has a platform that allows me to feel connected to my professors and peers inside and outside of the classroom. As a part-time student who works full-time, ADC’s hybrid learning gives me the flexibility and easy of doing both.
Joining ADC’s learning community has been the next step in my learning journey to equip myself to change, serve, and lead purposefully. Being an online student has allowed me to continue to serve my local community while exploring inclusive, participatory communities across generations, abilities, and ethnicities at ADC.
The environment fostered at ADC has allowed me to feel like a true part of the community. Not only have I been able to learn with and from my classmates and faculty through discussions and collaborative work and participate online in weekly campus chapel services, but emails from staff to check in with my term have made me feel a true sense of belonging. The learning community at ADC has guided me to continue to strive to understand my context and improve my skill set and practices rooted within a strong theological education that can adapt and grow to serve the needs of the next generation today and tomorrow.
During my time studying at ADC, every course I have taken thus far has helped me develop my cultural intelligence, strengthen my current understanding of urban church ministerial dynamics and structures, and learn how to properly lead through times of conflict and times of triumph. From the diverse range of materials they teach, to engaging in practical yet challenging conversations inside and outside the classroom, the faculty at ADC are wholly dedicated to providing quality experiences to help and encourage students.
