A private member's bill granting university college status to Tyndale College, Toronto has been passed by the Ontario legislature and signed into law. This fall, the institution will change its name to Tyndale University College and Seminary and begin offering bachelor of arts degrees.

Students will be able to enrol in the bachelor of arts program, with majors in business administration, English, history, human services, philosophy, psychology and religious studies. Students currently enrolled in the four-year bachelor of religious studies degree will be transferred into re the bachelor of arts program. Tyndale will continue to offer a bachelor of religious education degree, its traditional program in church and ministry related training.

According to Tyndale's president, Dr. Brian C. Stiller: "This initiative is critical to the witness of the Christian community in Canada. In an age of dominant secularity, educating young people in an environment that respects a Christian world view is essential to our understanding of life and creation. We are grateful to the provincial government for understanding how important it is to provide for a Christian university education."

Tyndale University College was founded in 1894 in Toronto. In 1968, Toronto Bible College (as it was then called) joined with the London College of Bible and Missions in London, Ont. The seminary was founded in 1976 and is one of the largest In Canada today.
