Individual campuses and communities offer additional “Specialty” Certificates tailored to local needs and faculty expertise.
The Graduate Certificate in Lutheran Studies through our Charlotte campus delves into the history, theology and culture of the Lutheran tradition.
Our Graduate Certificates are intentionally modular, allowing you to stack certificates together to build towards (or even complete) a master’s degree.
*The MACM is a “professional degree,” which primarily means it is weighted toward developing practical ministry skills. As such, six of the concentration electives in the MACM should be drawn from practical theology or counseling courses. Currently, the Certificate in Lay Counseling and Certificate in Spiritual Formation fit ideally in this scenario.
In the same way, certificates can be applied toward the MATS (60 credits) or the MDIV (90 credits). Graduate certificates allow you to start small and work toward a full MA.
* All students can expect to receive some form of financial assistance. Most students qualify for the scholarship listed here. Reach out to our admissions team (using the form below) to see if you qualify for this or any other scholarships or financial assistance.
Note: Service fees will be charged as follows for each semester/summer session in which a student registers for courses, regardless of student status or credit hours or registration type.
|Fall/Spring/Full Summer||$175 per term|
|Summer I, II, III (Intensives)||$35 per session|

Note: Unfortunately, our Graduate Certificate programs are not eligible for federal aid.
