Graduate Certificate Programs

Certificate programs at Taylor Seminary are designed for students/graduates who desire greater depth or a specialized focus.  Each certificate program may be taken concurrently with the requisite degree or taken after such degree has been completed.  Each is designed around specialized courses or experiences (all courses may not be offered every year).


GRADUATE CERTIFICATE in Biblical Exposition

This graduate certificate is designed for those who intend to serve as pastors who will have regular preaching responsibilities and those who intend to go on to further studies in Bible and Theology.

In addition to the requirements in the MDiv program, students who enroll in this certificate must complete a further 12 credits: 9 credits in Bible (courses with titles beginning with BI, NT, or OT) and 3 credits in Preaching. The 9 credits in Bible must include 3 credits in either Greek Exegesis or Hebrew Exegesis through directed studies. Six credits in Introductory Hebrew are required as a prerequisite to Hebrew Exegesis, and 6 credits in Introductory Greek, as a prerequisite to Greek Exegesis.

Ideally, students should complete a 6-credit introduction to one of the Biblical languages in their undergraduate program. Those who have not done so may transfer a 6-credit introductory language course into the Graduate Certificate in Biblical Exposition, and this will be applied to the 9 credits required in Bible.

Contact Admissions to further discuss this Graduate Certificate.


GRADUATE CERTIFICATE in Intercultural Studies

This certificate is designed for those who anticipate their ministry will be exercised in an unfamiliar cultural context or in a highly multicultural context. In addition to the requirements of the MDiv or MTS programs (provided that they include MI 545 Evangelism and Church Planting in their program), students must complete a further 12 credits in Mission (MI) or World Religion (WR) courses.

Contact Admissions to further discuss this Graduate Certificate.


GRADUATE CERTIFICATE in Spiritual Formation
