Learn How to Better Serve Your Community with an Online Postgraduate Certificate in Chaplaincy
Navigating the secular and pluralistic settings of the modern work environment for chaplains can be challenging. Liberty’s 100% online Postgraduate Certificate in Chaplaincy might just be the answer to those challenges. Our 9-credit-hour postgraduate certificate can provide doctoral-level training without the commitment of a full Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program. At Liberty, you can discover new ways to impact your community for Christ.
A postgraduate chaplaincy certificate is an excellent alternative to a full-length doctoral degree because it allows you to gain new skills and credentials while saving time and money. At only 9 credit hours, this online chaplaincy certificate can be completed in just 1 semester. If you decide to continue your studies into a doctoral degree, credits from this certificate can transfer into our Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) in Chaplaincy.
Military Tuition Discount
If you have served in the military, we want to go above and beyond to show you our gratitude. That’s why we designed our postgraduate certificate to work especially well for you. Earning a postgraduate certificate makes you eligible for our military alumni doctoral discount — you’ll receive the discounted $300/credit hour military rate both during the certificate and later during a doctoral degree.* Many of our certificates roll directly into a corresponding doctoral degree, allowing you to get a jumpstart on your doctorate!
If your plans to earn a doctoral degree lie further in the future, each certificate also stands on its own as a professional development credential, setting you apart from your peers and giving you the flexibility to start a doctoral degree whenever you’re ready. It’s one more way we show our appreciation.
*In order to retain the $300/credit hour rate, the doctoral degree must be started within 2 years of completing the postgraduate certificate.
