Booth College to become university college

May 3, 2010

A Manitoba NDP MLA recently introduced legislation that would make official the status of William and Catherine Booth College, a Winnipeg-based theological institution and seminary affiliated with the Salvation Army, as a university college. As part of its upgrades to a university college, Booth now requires its students to meet university entrance standards. The University of Manitoba has amended its admission standards so that future Booth graduates in administration, arts, business, and social work can apply to uManitoba's graduate studies faculty. Booth's president hopes the name change will become official in time for the start of fall classes. Last year, the Manitoba government allowed Booth to market itself as a university college.
