Luterhan Studies Certificate is a post-graduate credential focusing on lutheran theology and church polity. A seminary might offer a Certificate in Lutheran Studies as part of its curriculum to meet the needs of students seeking ordination, as well as laypeople or scholars who want a more in-depth understanding of the lutheran church.
Lutheran denominations usually require candidates for ordination to attend a lutheran seminary or complete a “lutheran year” at a denominational seminary after graduating from an unaffiliated school. A Lutheran Studies Certificate program usually allows candidates to avoid having to complete an additional year of studies after earning an M.Div. at a non-lutheran institution.
Laypeople and those interested in studying lutheranism may also elect to complete a certificate program as a way of gaining knowledge and, in some cases, qualifying for jobs or volunteer positions, such as Sunday school teaching, in lutheran organizations, schools and churches.
