About our Certificate and Diploma Programs
Carey Institute offers programs for graduate diplomas and undergraduate certificates in two disciplines, Christian Studies and Ministry. Both tracks cover the same content, although assignments vary according to the discipline chosen. All programs include online courses, mentorship, and practical ministry assignments.
The Christian Studies program is designed to equip people for Christian living and ministry in the context of their daily lives. It is suitable for those seeking personal growth, spiritual formation, and a more mature understanding of what it means to follow Jesus. The program stimulates growth in biblical and theological foundations and calls students to a renewal in their personal life of faith.
The Ministry program is designed to equip people for ministry in a variety of environments, with a particular focus on the local church. It is suitable for those seeking personal growth, spiritual formation and a more mature understanding of theology. The program develops a measure of professional competence, stimulates growth in biblical and theological foundations for ministry, and calls students to a renewal in their personal life of faith.
Students can participate in these programs as individuals or as part of a church-based cohort. In each case, Carey Institute seeks to customize the program according to the needs of the students. See Church Based Programs for more information about studying together as a group.
