CERTIFICATE IN CHRISTIAN STUDIES (CERT.)
A Certificate in Christian Studies program is offered for men and women who desire graduate-level courses from Redeemer but do not desire to enter a degree program.
Admission to the certificate program requires the same qualifications as admission for the M.Div. program. Registration, tuition charges, and all academic procedures and prerequisites are also the same.
The Certificate will be earned after the completion of 25 semester hours of M.A., M.A.R., or M.Div. courses. All courses in the Certificate program must be taken under the auspices of Redeemer Seminary. Included must be AP 101 Introduction to Apologetics and ST 101 Introduction to Systematic Theology. Greek and Hebrew are not approved for credit toward the Certificate program. As with other degree programs, these languages do not count toward required credit hours. Language work was not the intention of the Certificate program.
Students who earn a Certificate in Christian Studies from Redeemer Seminary and desire to apply this work toward a Master of Divinity or Master of Arts in Religion degree must surrender the Certificate prior to graduation.
Financial aid is not available to participants in this program, and in most cases international students cannot be granted visas for participating in this program.
