CERTIFICATE OF CHRISTIAN STUDIES
The Certificate of Christian Studies offers students an opportunity to complete a focused course of study or a sampling of master's-level courses from the School of Intercultural Studies. It is an ideal program for practitioners who would like to take a few courses in the School of Intercultural Studies to supplement their ministries. It requires the successful completion of 24 quarter units. By enrolling in convenient daytime or evening courses, students pursuing the certificate can gain an introduction to missiological, theological, and biblical basics at the graduate level.
Admission requirements for certificate programs are the same as for master's degree programs.
Students can focus on either a specific curriculum or a sampling of courses to match their personal interests and goals. Courses may include any combination of campus-based classes (on any Fuller campus), correspondence courses, and online classes. Directed studies are not available to certificate students. All work must be completed at Fuller; no transfer credit is accepted toward the certificate.
All work for the certificate must be completed within a seven-year period.
Since certificate courses may be applied to master's-level degree programs, students can utilize their time as certificate students to explore the possibility of a School of Intercultural Studies master's degree.
