The Certificate in Hispanic Studies is a graduate certificate program offered by many seminaries for those who wish to pursue graduate studies beyond the typical bachelor’s degree in ministry or theology that most pastors hold. A semianry’s Hispanic Studies Certificate would equip the minister of the gospel to serve the needs of congregations who are overseas in Spanish-speaking countries or in communities within the United States that have a significant Latino population.
Graduate certificates in Hispanic studies combine cultural, linguistic, and theological studies into comprehensive coursework that educates and informs pastors about the socio-cultural aspects of Hispanic ministry, the geopolitical and historical background of Spain and Latin American countries as well as the theological landscape in which Christian ministry occurs in such countries. Certificates in Hispanic Studies usually incorporate some foreign language study in Spanish or Portuguese.
