Certificate in Christian Studies
In January 2012, Wesley began an innovative program for laity to enroll in non-credit courses in biblical studies, church history, theology and practical ministry. Students who complete six courses may receive a Certificate in Christian Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary. We welcome all interested participants who desire theological enrichment and being equipped for a particular ministry to register for this program. Certificate of Christian Studies students are auditors. You may complete as many of the assignments as you have time to do. We request you keep up with the reading and you must attend all class sessions to receive credit for the course.
Course sessions will be held at Wesley's main campus, 4500 Massachusetts Avenue, NW Washington, D.C., on weekends. Currently this program is being held in a hybrid format; the first half is on-line via Blackboard and the second half in residence on campus. Each residency weekend session is held from 1 - 9 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Saturday with breaks. Each course is comprised of 20 contact hours of instruction and are taken concurrently with the Course of Study Weekend Program.

Please note: Courses in the Certificate Program will not earn graduate-level credit and cannot be transferred to a Wesley degree program.
