Persons of leadership, skill, and faith are always on the move to enhance their knowledge base. Bethany offers five specialized graduate certificates, which address areas of immediate application of theological education in our world today.
These certificates are offered in the same course formats and locations as those for the degree programs and can be completed in one to two years. Students can take any number of courses in a semester. Not all courses are offered every year. Credited courses may be eligible for transfer into a full degree program.
