Diploma in Advanced Theological Studies

This program provides international students an opportunity for additional theological work beyond what may be available in their home contexts. The program can be tailored to their particular needs.

In order to preserve the greatest degree of flexibility to meet individual student needs, the requirements for the diploma are minimal. It is expected that all course work be completed in one year of full-time study.
