Custom-design majors: Furthermore, students may custom-design majors (to be developed between the student and the seminary) to meet the student's specific needs.
These Certificates allow students to enroll into the Seminary without the responsibility of committing to a full degree program.
- Each Certificate is a complete program in itself
- Students may enroll for only a Certificate
- Students may transfer a Certificate to a full degree
Each certificate is 16 credits, and all of the credits can be transferred into a full program with CES should the student decide to go on for a degree. For example, if a student does a Master's-level Certificate and later wishes to do a full Master's degree, the 16 credits completed for the Master's-level Certificate will be applied to the Master's degree of the student's choice.
This is a fantastic way for students to "test the waters" to see if they want to go further.
These various certificates allow people to (1) assess what the CES program is like, (2) determine if they wish to go further in their studies, and (3) if they decide not to go on, they have still earned a Certificate from CES.
