Home / Academics / Certificate in Pastoral Studies (On-Campus)

The Certificate in Pastoral Studies (HEGIS 5623) is designed for the Orthodox Christians who wish to undergo theological, spiritual, and pastoral formation in preparation for the service to the Orthodox Church but cannot or are unwilling to enroll in a full Bachelor of Theology program.  The objective of the program is to provide basic theological and pastoral training to the candidates wishing to serve the Orthodox Church as priests, deacons, minor clergy or lay leaders, or to those who wish to enrich their theological education and ecclesial life.  

Application Requirements:  Application requirements and tuition are the same as for the Bachelor of Theology. All classes are taught in English and must be completed on-campus, and a distance study option is not provided.  

Course Requirements:  The program requires a completion of 68 credit hours, normally over the course of four semesters.  The courses included in this Certificate program include survey courses in the Scriptures, liturgics, systematic theology, and church history.  The language courses are not required by this program.
