St. Andrew's College course offerings for the 2020-21 academic year. Also available in PDF format. See specific course subject area pages for descriptions of courses, or contact the Registrar at standrews.registrar@usask.ca for more information. 

St. Andrew's College students can register for courses offered by the Lutheran Theological Seminary (LTS) and the College of Emmanuel & St. Chad (ESC) through the St. Andrew’s College Populi registration system with permission from their faculty advisor and/or the course instructor. All of the available College of Emmanuel & St. Chad (ESC) courses are listed below. Not all of the Lutheran Theological Seminary (LTS) Courses are listed below. Please see the LTS website for a full list of available LTS courses.

We are continuing to offer courses and community gatherings for the upcoming academic year. All courses and community gatherings will be held online, until restrictions are lifted and we can safely be together in person. We will have booked times to gather, hosted online through various platforms. Once we receive direction from public health authorities that we can safely be together, we will begin to do that.

Winter 2021 Term Update

The Winter 2021 term will be primarily remote online learning. You will be able to complete the Winter 2021 term courses without coming to campus. If restrictions change where students are then allowed to study on campus, there may be options for in-person engagement but any students registered in courses will be able to complete all course requirements online. For courses that normally have a placement component, students will be contacted directly by the course instructor. Courses for Winter 2021 will either be completely asynchronous or a combination of synchronous and asynchronous components.
