The Christian Spirituality Certificate program provides students with a foundational and experiential knowledge of the spiritual life as expressed in the Holy Scriptures, church history, theology and contemporary realities. It will introduce students to the art and practice of Spiritual Direction and – within the community of students – will create opportunities to share each other's unique faith journeys within the larger context of the Christian story, and deepen students’ spiritual life by visiting holy places for worship, prayer and contemplation. This program includes a pilgrimage to a religious site that has rich theological and spiritual significance.
Core course requirements for entrance into the applied counselling program are listed in the Academic Calendar. Acceptance into the Graduate Certificate in Christian Spirituality program will be evaluated on case-by-case basis. Although a recognized undergraduate degree is preferred, admission as a mature student without an undergraduate degree will be considered. In such instances, previous post-secondary education, employment and/or ministry experience may be taken into account.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please look to the Academic Calendar for full information and course lists. If there are discrepancies between the information listed here and in the Academic Calendar, the Academic Calendar is definitive.
Graduates build careers in Christian education, missions, para-church ministries, pastoral leadership, Christian counselling, worship ministry and youth leadership.
