Grace Theological Seminary recognizes that some students are unable to study in traditional master’s level seminary programs. Therefore, we offer three programs to meet these student's special needs: a Diploma in Theology, Certificate in Biblical Studies, and Certificate in Intercultural Studies. The Certificate in Biblical Studies is also available in online format. For more information on the online format, please contact Seminary Admissions.
