We know that choosing a seminary is one of the most important decisions that you will make for your future. Because of this, we feel that one of the best ways for you to make an informed decision is based on first-hand seminary encounter. We encourage you to take advantage of one of our campus visit or online info session options!

Preview Days

Our preview days are designed to give you a hands-on feel for McMaster Divinity College and experience life within the MDC community. Whether you plan to study full-time or part-time, whether you live in Hamilton or will commute to campus, you will be part of this community, and it would be great for you to experience it ahead of time!

Potential students, along with pastors, mentors, family members, or friends, are invited to participate in Preview Days. You will be warmly welcomed! Please join us for a full day or evening where you will personally meet professors, staff, and students. This is a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about MDC!

Preview Days provide you with the opportunity to be part of a class in session, enjoy a meal with faculty, and experience a campus tour. Of course, refreshments will always make up part of a Preview Day experience!

Our upcoming Preview Days are scheduled for:
 New dates coming soon!
