Online Certificate Options

The Spiritual Guidance and Care has two online non-degree certificate options. The programs are designed for professionals who wish to add a new dimension of spiritual formation to their work as counselors and spiritual directors, as well as those interested in personal growth and development.

A. Certificate/Graduate Credit: Students with an undergraduate degree may apply for the certificate program and take the 15 hours of specified courses online, receiving graduate credit for the non-degree program and a graduate certificate upon completion.
