Certificate Overview

The Certificate in Interreligious Studies is particularly beneficial for those who are currently working in an interreligious setting or preparing to do so. This certificate consists of 18 semester hours. A student is required to take an introductory course in interreligious studies and is allowed to take one course outside of this area of concentration. The remaining credits and the major portion of a student’s program will be drawn from the wide range of interreligious courses in consultation with an advisor in order to design a flexible program that addresses the particular interests and circumstances of each student.

Catholic Theological Union offers a wide variety of certificate programs for students who wish to specialize in their theological education or prepare for service in new ministries.

Certificates vary in length from 18 to 24 hours of course work.
