Newman Theological College

logoNewman Theological College (NTC) is a Roman Catholic School of Theology in the Archdiocese of Edmonton, which is committed to the provision of theological education to Christian women and men. The college prepares laity, religious, and ordained ministers for service and leadership to meet the needs of the Church in Western Canada.


Newman Theological College fulfills this mission through theological education in the following ways:

  • Programs that prepare students for professional and volunteer ministry in the Church, notably the Master of Divinity degree.
  • Provision for academic study of theology through programs at undergraduate and graduate levels.
  • Special attention to the needs of the Catholic educational community through programs such as the Master of Religious Education program and the Graduate Certificate in Catholic School Administration.

For Newman Theological College a natural consequence of its academic study of theology is the desire to make theological education and faith formation available to all through participation in the New Evangelization. This occurs through the college’s Benedict XVI Institute for New Evangelization. The Institute provides:

  • Certificate in Catholic Studies: short and affordable online courses and certificates in many areas of theology.
  • An annual enculturation program for international priests.
  • Treasures of Our Faith: Free seminars with college faculty on various issues of theology and faith.
  • Vocatus: A community of business leaders who gather to foster reflection on faith and vocation.
  • Aboriginal Spirituality and Ministry: Sponsors seminars that support reflection upon aboriginal spirituality and ministry in relation to the Catholic faith.
