2022-2023 Academic Catalog

Certificate Program

The graduate theology certificate is ideal for students who wish to deepen their theological knowledge without completing an entire master's degree.  Individuals working as counselors, teachers, or administrators in church-related institutions may find the certificate particularly attractive, as it will provide exposure to a broad base of theological disciplines.

Courses complete for the graduate theology certificate may be applied toward a Master of Arts in Theology or a Master of Arts in Church leadership; a separate application is required to enter a master's degree program.

Admission requirements are the same as for students in a graduate program and can be found here.

Policies can be found here.
