We would be delighted to have you visit campus but since COVID-19 has temporarily prevented us from welcoming you in person, we would be very pleased to have you join us for one of our online options below.

These info sessions will allow you an opportunity to ask questions and receive information that is relevant to the program you are interested in. These info sessions should be approximately 1 hour in length. It is necessary to register for these events ahead of time so that we can send you the invitation to join our online meeting.

Our online info sessions are scheduled for:

Due to COVID-19 all of our on-campus Preview Days and Drop-In dates are temporarily on hold. Please consider attending one of our Online Info Sessions instead.

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:
Currently on hold.

Our upcoming Saturday Drop-In is scheduled for:
