With the establishment of the Atlantic School of Theology (AST) in 1974, the work of the Faculty of Divinity of the University of King’s College was transferred to AST and the Faculty of Divinity dissolved as a teaching component of King’s College. Divinity scholarships of King’s College are tenable at AST and are awarded upon the nomination of the Scholarship Committee of AST. Details of programs and course offerings are given in the AST Calendar.

Institute of Pastoral Training
The Institute of Pastoral Training was established in 1958 by collaboration of the University of King’s College, Pine Hill Divinity Hall, the Divinity School of Acadia University, Presbyterian College (Montreal), and representatives of the Medical Faculty of Dalhousie University.
The Atlantic School of Theology (AST) continues to co-operate with Acadia Divinity College, Wolfville, NS, and Queen’s College, St. John’s, NL, in the Institute of Pastoral Training Incorporated. During the past years, the Institute has been greatly reduced in terms of its operations. It has offered Supervised Pastoral Education programs throughout the four Atlantic provinces to the standards of the Canadian Association for Pastoral Practice and education. The Institute has also provided opportunities for pursuing the degree of Master of Theology in Pastoral Care.
