Certificate in Local Church Ministry: The Certificate in Local Church Ministry is designed to offer students a basic theological education for personal enrichment and for continuing education of ministers. To earn the Certificate, a student would complete eighteen hours of coursework in the Bible, Ministry, and Theology Departments. Any or all of these courses may be taken through EVC. Continuing education courses do not carry any academic credit, nor can these courses be applied toward a degree program at any time.
CEU @ ETS: One of the ways the seminary serves its alumni and other constituents is through a full program of continuing education. Recently, the seminary launched Continuing Education @ Erskine Theological Seminary (CEU@ETS).
The CEU@ETS initiative is designed to make continuing education credits (CEUs) available to those who need to or wish to pursue further theological education after graduation. Participants may attend Due West campus or extension site courses and take them for CEU credit. Each three-hour course counts as 3.0 continuing education credits (CEU’s).
Continuing education courses do not carry any academic credit, nor can these courses be applied toward a degree program at any time. Students are not required to take examinations or do academic work such as research papers, etc. Interested persons may also enroll in online courses through our Erskine Virtual Campus (EVC) and control when to “attend” continuing education events.
Through our computerized database we are able to enroll participants and track CEU credits on their behalf and award CEU certificates whenever they are needed in order to verify successful completion of continuing education requirements to a third party. Anyone wishing to receive CEU credit can simply fill out an Application for Admission for Continuing Education online. A student is not required to possess an undergraduate degree in order to pursue continuing education courses.
