Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Theological Studies

The Faculty of Theology at the University of St. Michael’s College is pleased to announce that we are now offering a Certificate in Theological Studies.

This 7-course certificate, offered conjointly with the University of Toronto, allows students to gain an introduction to theological studies.

The Certificate in Theological Studies is designed for a broad audience:

  • Are you thinking about theological studies but not sure you are ready to commit to a full degree? The certificate gives you a taste of studying theology.
  • Do you want to go on to graduate-level work in theology but don’t have the background? This certificate allows you to earn the foundational work needed to apply to graduate programs.
  • Are you a mature student with some post-secondary education who does not possess a degree but would like to engage in further studies?

This certificate course requirements include:

  • 1 unit — Introduction to Old Testament (SMB1007)
  • 1 unit — Introduction to New Testament (SMB1501)
  • 1 unit — Introductory systematics (Foundations of Theology)
  • 1 unit — A History overview course
  • 1 introductory course of your choosing
  • 2 units of study at a more advanced level (i.e. courses at the 2000 or 3000 level)

Courses in Eastern Christian Studies taken in conjunction with the Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky Institute may be applied to this certificate. 

The Certificate in Theological Studies may be completed on a part-time or full-time basis, with all work to be completed within four years.

Note: All Fall courses will be taught remotely. A decision for course delivery in the Winter term will come at a later date.
