Online Certificates in Biblical Studies are designed for students looking to increase their knowledge of the Bible through an introduction to critical approaches of biblical interpretation. Many seminaries offer these certificate programs online, often emphasizing foundational material in biblical languages and critical methods for biblical hermeneutics.
Depending on the school, curriculum can vary in concentrations including theology, denominational studies and evangelism. Nevertheless, the main purpose of all Biblical Studies Certificate programs is to encourage a heightened level of engagement with biblical text to empower students to use the knowledge and skills gained within each student’s own chosen area of ministry.
Because many divinity schools offer Biblical Studies Certificate programs online, students are able to balance their studies with family, work and ministry schedules. Some certificates are offered in as little as two semesters, but in most cases students are offered enough flexibility to work towards their certificate in the amount of time most suited to their individual needs and goals.
