One year, part time–work while you study
While the Certificate in Christian Studies is a 60 unit course – normally completed in six months of full time study, it has been spread out to allow it to be completed comfortably part time over a 1 year period. This allows students to work full or part time while they study.
Students only need to be on campus for classes at the beginning of a course. Class work is due 5-6 weeks after the on-campus classes conclude
The Certificate in Christian Studies is structured as a study cohort, meaning all students work at the same pace. This means students build long term relationships together throughout the year, providing a source of long term encouragement and support.
Many students find they love learning about the Word of God and want to do more study. The Certificate in Christian Studies allows students to defer graduation and continue toward a Diploma in Biblical Studies.
