Why get a graduate certificate in Christian Studies at Northwestern?
This certificate will expand your knowledge of scripture and theology as you gain an introduction to graduate-level education. By completing key courses from the Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MATS) curriculum, you will grow deeper in biblical knowledge.
The Graduate Certificate in Christian Studies is granted upon completion of 16 credits of MATS coursework, and those credits will fully transfer toward the later completion of the Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MATS) or the Master of Divinity (MDIV). Students entering the program must already have a bachelor’s degree.
If you have a passion to study the Bible and want to understand important theological concepts, this might be the right graduate certificate for you.
What will you learn?
You will learn to analyze, think critically, and become grounded in Scripture.
Some classes include:
- Spiritual Formation
- Biblical Hermeneutics
