Interreligious Studies Graduate Certificate

=Graduate-Certificate-in-Interreligious-Studies - Main

Hartford International offers an alternative in graduate learning: the 12-credit Graduate Certificate in Interreligious Studies. This program provides opportunities for study without committing to a full master’s degree program and can serve as a professional credential for spiritual caregivers and leaders who want exposure to a variety of religious traditions.

You will work with your assigned academic advisor to select four courses that meet your educational objectives. The Graduate Certificate may be completed entirely online.

What You Need to Know before Applying

A Bachelor’s degree (or its educational equivalent) at a satisfactory level of achievement from an accredited institution is a prerequisite for admission.

Coursework that was taken for credit as a Special Student at Hartford International prior to admission may be applied toward the credits required for the Graduate Certificate; however, at least 6 credits must be taken after official notification of admission to the Graduate Certificate program. No transfer credit from other institutions or Advanced Standing credit will be allowed to count toward the certificate.

Admission to the Graduate Certificate does not constitute or guarantee admission to the Master of Arts degree programs. Admission is granted only on the basis of the terms stated in the Catalogue and in the admission letter.
