Graduate Certificates

Grow Your Faith. Achieve Your Goals.
Earn a graduate certificate from Pensacola Theological Seminary.

When you choose Pensacola Theological Seminary, you’re not just choosing an excellent, Bible-based approach to education. You’re choosing to take a step toward deepening your walk with God and expanding your personal ministry opportunities. If you previously earned a bachelor’s degree, earning your graduate certificate could be the perfect next step. A graduate certificate is a smaller time commitment than getting a master’s degree—but you’ll still advance your education.

Grow as a servant leader through classes that balance meditating on and ministering with God’s Word. And the whole way, you’ll be supported by caring seminary faculty. They’ll skillfully guide your learning through lecture-based study rather than just giving reading assignments, giving you the confidence you need to increase your service opportunities and strengthen your understanding of Scripture.
