Carroll’s Graduate Certificates provide master level education for people engaged in specific areas of ministry, but not interested in seeking a degree. The Graduate Certificates are transcriptable, i.e., the courses are taken for academic credit and are recorded on a student transcript to be applied to a degree program at Carroll or transferred to another institution. Please know that no guarantee is made that another institution would apply these courses to one of their degrees.
At B. H. Carroll, courses are grouped into learning clusters. These clusters are natural convergences of the functional roles in ministry. The four clusters are as follows:
- Scripture and Witness (SW)– This cluster includes courses in Biblical studies, New Testament, Old Testament, Biblical Languages, Preaching, and Interpretation.
- Ministry and Formation (MF)– This cluster includes courses in Education, Leadership, Church Administration, and Pastoral Ministry.
- Worship and Mission (WM)– This cluster includes courses in Worship, Missions, and Evangelism
- Faith and Heritage (FH)– This cluster includes courses in Christian Heritage (Christian History), Theology, Philosophy, Ethics, and Apologetics.
A Graduate Certificate consists of four (4) courses within a cluster, corresponding to an area of study.
