Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary’s newly-accredited Certificate in Pastoral Studies is a two-year, on-campus program consisting of courses selected from the Bachelor of Theology. The Certificate in Pastoral Studies provides a theological, liturgical, and pastoral foundation for men who have an earnest desire to serve the Church as well as for those who are already serving. The program is 68 credits, and includes surveys of Holy Scripture, Liturgics, Theology, and Church History. Language courses and more specialized theological courses are not included. See the complete list below. All classes will be taught in English.

Application requirements and tuition are the same as for the Bachelor of Theology. The program is not yet registered with SEVIS, but an application is underway. An announcement will be posted when approval is given. International students may apply at that time. All classes must be completed on-campus, and a distance study option is not provided. Those who wish to study theology through distance education may consider HTOS’ Certificate of Theological Studies.

 Anyone interested in the new program may contact Rev. Dn. Ephraim Willmarth atejwillmarth@hts.edu or (315) 858-0945.  Applications to the new Certificate program are accepted until August 15, 2014.
