Cert in Hispanic Theology & Ministry


The Certificate in Hispanic Theology and Ministry (HTM) offers students a background in pastoral theology, spirituality, intercultural and related disciplines. The HTM certificate program is especially helpful for pastoral ministers who want an academic background in Latino/a theology, want to enhance their preparation for Hispanic/Latino/a ministry, or wish to complete a year’s study in Catholic theology.


The HTM Certificate consists of six or more courses (18 semesters hours). Two of the courses are electives, which gives you latitude to explore a variety of issues in theological disciplines while still maintaining a Latino/a perspective. The required courses include a 3000 level course, plus three specifically Latino/a courses. One of the three Latino/a topic courses may be substituted by a semester of either the ministry practicum or ministry immersion in a Latino/a/Hispanic setting.
