Certificate Programs

UGST offers several graduate certificate programs designed to offer specialized graduate education for students not seeking a degree. These programs are subject to the same tuition and fees as normal courses.

Concentration Certificates

Students who wish to earn a Certificate in any of the concentrations offered in the degree programs may do so by completing 12 hours of coursework. The 12 hours are derived from the specific concentrations and any other courses relevant for a certificate. All certificates are subject to availability, and additional certificates may also be offered. Students are strongly encouraged to consider the Apostolic Studies Certificate because of its focus on doctrine.

Concentrations include:

  • Pastoral Care & Counseling
  • Intercultural Studies
  • Arts & Worship
  • Biblical/Theological Interpretation
  • Historical Studies

Apostolic Studies Certificate

Any student wishing to earn a Graduate Certificate in Apostolic Studies will successfully complete a minimum of four courses from UGST: Systematic Theology I, Systematic Theology II, Personal Spiritual Disciplines, and Modern Pentecostal Movements. As part of fulfilling the academic requirements for a chaplaincy endorsement by the United Pentecostal Church International, candidates must earn a Graduate Certificate in Apostolic Studies.
