Certificate in Theological Formation
Are you looking to get a solid theological education?
A Certificate in Theological Formation is a 24 credit hour certificate. Classes are a combination of online and on-campus offerings. All theology courses are taught by experienced Saint Paul faculty.
The theology certificate program is right for you if you want to:
- Lead a church in a denomination that does not require a master's level seminary degree
- Work in a church and want additional theological preparation
- Serve at a faith-based or non-profit organization
- Work as a parish nurse that is better equipped to engage communities
- Gain deeper knowledge as a lay member of a congregation
