Welcome to a different kind of university -
shaping leadership in the community.
Leaders come in many forms. Atlantic School of Theology helps develop post-graduate students for ministry, as well as for meeting the theological and ethical challenges of today's world.
At AST, students are able to explore new avenues for theological education such as interfaith dialogue, which is becoming a major part of the societal context in which ministry and community leadership must now exercise its calling.
Along with a collaborative Masters program with St. Mary's University, AST jointly co-sponsors the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Public Affairs (CCEPA), located on the AST campus. The CCEPA provides an arena for critical thinking, public discussion, and research into current ethical challenges.
Our peaceful grounds are highly conducive to study. AST is located in the heart of the city's grand South End - the beautiful waterfront of the Northwest Arm is in our back yard, with the woodland Point Pleasant Park nearby.
AST is shaped by a tradition of cooperation and respect, going back over 40 years, to create an open and welcoming environment.
