Program Overview

Pursuing a Certificate in Pastoral Studies allows individuals to gain specific competencies in the focus area of their choice while earning a credential from an institution with a long-standing reputation for excellence in education and ministerial formation. The program will be of interest to those who seek to deepen their understanding of what constitutes the spiritual and personal well-being of others; it also provides an opportunity for those wishing to increase their professional competence in a range of areas that minister to these needs, including service in lay-ministry, hospitals, hospices, schools and a variety of other institutional settings.

Upon completion of the program, students should have developed a strong theoretical background and developed practical skills and be able to apply these skills to specific areas of pastoral care and counseling.
