The Certificate in Theology program is designed for any who seeks to increase their knowledge of the Christian faith, by introducing the learner to the core theological subjects.
The Certificate in Theology program is the equivalent of one half-year of full-time university study, but generally it takes one to two years of part time study to complete; it must be completed within five years.
15 credits as follows:
Required Courses (15 credits total)
THEO 1010: Introduction to the Bible (3 cr; required)
THEO 1200: Introduction to Christian Theology (3cr; requited)
Any three THEO 1000 level courses (See pages 29of the 2023 Handbook), or THEO 2000 level courses with the permission of the Director (See pages 29-31).
No courses from other institutions will be considered for transfer credit to the Certificate in Theology program.
Courses from the Certificate in Theology may be transferred to the C.A.L.M program, the Diploma in Theology, or the Bachelor of Theology.
THEO courses are normally conducted by email correspondence, with recommended books and manuals. They may also be taught synchronously by Zoom or on other platforms.
Each course in the Certificate of Theology Program is to be completed within a single academic term, (Fall–September to December; Winter–January to April; Spring–May to August).
All THEO courses require a variety of written assignments and a final examination or summative exercise. Students are encouraged to submit their assignments online.
