Cert in Black Theology & Ministry


The Certificate in Black Theology and Ministry (BTM) offers students a background in theology, spirituality, pastoral ministry, intercultural studies, and related disciplines. The BTM certificate program is especially helpful for pastoral ministers who are seeking to enhance their academic background in Black/African American theologies and/or their preparation for ministry in Black/African American communities. The BTM Certificate consists of 18 credit hours, which may be taken on-site or online: nine required credits with a Black focus, six elective credits with Black-themed threads/perspectives, and three elective credits in any discipline.
