October 19 Update:

After careful consideration and with input from faculty and students, AST has made the decision to deliver all Winter 2021 courses online only. With COVID cases on the rise across the country, online learning remains the best way to ensure the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and broader community.
The AST Library will remain open Monday to Friday, 8:30 am–4:30 pm. Curbside pick-up will also remain an option during open hours. Policies on physical distancing, face masks, and regular disinfection of high-touch surfaces are in place for everyone’s safety.
We would like to thank our faculty, staff, and students for their patience and perseverance as we continue learning and teaching in a virtual environment. While we cannot yet be together in person, we are discovering that with a little creativity and ingenuity, new insights and connections can still be forged.
We continue to follow public health directives for in-person encounters, where they can occur. We are mindful of the importance of physical presence for distance education, especially as this has worked in our Summer Distance program. We will make a decision about the Summer 2021 term at a later date.

AST classes

  • After extensive consultation, we determined that all courses and con-ed programs will take place online only until the end of 2020 (Exception: small special-purpose academic gatherings may take place from time to time as necessary, in accordance with Nova Scotia public health directives)
  • A decision regarding winter Term 2021 offerings will be made by the end of the Fall Term

May 15 Update:

Atlantic School of Theology has moved it popular summer term programs and classes to a fully virtual environment. Plans for the fall term are currently being reviewed. Updates will follow by mid-June.

April 6 Update:

The Faculty Council met and has decided – with the agreement of AST’s senior management – to relocate all of Summer term 2020 into the virtual environment. There will be no on-campus classes, programs, or worship at AST in Summer 2020. However, we will still have a (virtual) Summer term.

March 18 Update:

AST is well positioned to continue our programs and courses beyond this term. We’re taking things one step at a time. As people of prayer and care, we will get through this together.

March 16 Update:

In keeping with this public health direction, AST is moving as quickly as possible to offer classes online.  Effective March 15, on-campus classes are suspended and will be moving to virtual course delivery as soon as things can be arranged. 

Students: you will hear from your instructors about the plan for your specific course(s). Some course requirements may be modified, given the circumstances. Please note that all students who complete course requirements successfully this term will receive course credit. Those on track to graduate in Spring 2020 can still graduate.
