The Certificate in Theological Studies is a one year program designed to provide those interested in the Christian faith with a basic understanding of what it means to be Christian in our time and in local and global contexts.
It provides an opportunity to gain a basic knowledge of the Christian heritage (scripture, tradition and theology), experience Christianity within a ministering context, engage in critical reflection with others on Christian texts, experience and contexts, and grow spiritually.
The Certificate in Theological Studies is awarded by Queen's University on the recommendation of the Faculty of Queen's School of Religion.
Transfer from the Certificate in Theological Studies to a Degree Program - The Certificate may become, for some, a "stepping stone" to further graduate study in theology. Those interested in transferring into a degree program may apply for entrance to a program according to admission standards. A cumulative average of 70 per cent in courses taken to complete the Certificate in Theological Studies is required for admission to a degree program.
Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree (B.A. or equivalent) from a university or college recognized by Queen's University normally with a minimum cumulative average of 65 per cent.
