I wanted to pursue my masters from a country like Canada, as it has always been my dream. I made a list of my expectations and this college was matching with all of them. So, I applied online through the application form available on the official website along with an application fee of $250.
Course Curriculum :
My course is mainly focussed on the study of God and various religious faiths and beliefs, it is structured in such a way that it covers the diversity of cultures, faiths, etc. It is quite an interesting course and it gives you so much information. It also connects us with our religions through various sayings which are one of the most interesting parts of this curriculum. Course structure and examinations have been evenly spaced between the course period.
