Tyndale Theological Seminary

Certificate of Theological Studies

The program for the CTS is equivalent to one year of full-time studies, but it can be done part-time, as well. This certificate program offers a good balance of introductory courses in Bible and Theology, along with ministry and intercultural courses.

The ideal student for the CTS is one who has a bachelor’s degree, and who desires an introductory theological education for personal or ministry reasons. This certificate program is limited to students who are in the EU, or have a valid residence permit for the Netherlands. No scholarships are offered for this program.
