CURRICULUM

In light of the need for continuing education in the church, higher education, and organizational leadership, the Educational Ministries and Studies Department offers three Certificates – Certificate in Educational Ministries, Certificate in Teaching and Learning (both masters and doctoral levels), and Certificate in Organizational Leadership (both masters and doctoral levels). The Certificates are intended to engage learners who may not be interested in enrolling in a degree program, may wish to add it to their current master’s degree program, or are interested in postgraduate or postdoctoral studies

Financial Aid

Did you know that nearly 95% of our students receive some form of financial aid? At Trinity we offer scholarships, grants, rebates, and other aid options to help pay for the cost of schooling. Learn more about what is available below or by contacting the Financial Aid Office at [email protected].

why complete a certificate program?

The Certificate in Teaching and Learning is designed for persons who desire to obtain advanced certification in teaching and learning at either the masters or doctoral level, but do not wish to enroll in a degree program. Or for persons who may not possess a baccalaureate degree but have had intensive or extensive life experience with teaching and learning practice, and are able to demonstrate the ability to do graduate level studies. The Certificate in Teaching and Learning is also appropriate for those who wish to explore teaching and learning in addition to their other TIU degree program. A doctoral level Higher Education Track is available for those persons who hold a graduate degree or wish to pursue a postdoc, and are teaching or anticipating teaching in a higher education context. Admission to the Certificate does not ensure admission to a Trinity degree program; however, it is designed so that courses completed may apply toward a future TEDS degree.

Admission Requirements

Applicants to the Certificate in Teaching and Learning generally possess the following:
  • Intensive or extensive life experience with teaching and learning practice in the church, parachurch, other Christian organization, higher education, or in the public education arena (generally five-plus years of full-time experience)
  • Non-formal or informal preparation for teaching and learning at the graduate level
  • Demonstrated academic ability through evaluation and interview by the EM Department (personal interview encompassing demonstrable skills, character, knowledge, and critical thinking)
  • Admission to the Higher Education Track is limited to those persons who hold a graduate degree and are teaching or anticipating teaching in a higher education context.
