Theology and Ministry Online

The Certificate of Theology and Ministry (c:TM) is an online theology certificate taught by Princeton Seminary Faculty. The course of study is intended to bring Princeton Seminary’s scholarly engagement and community oriented learning to those who wish to see the world differently through the transformative lens of Christian theology.

Students will participate virtually in a face-to-face learning environment and join a global community of students in lively discussion over the deepest elements of the Christian faith. The 14-week online theology certificate is taught by the faculty of Princeton Seminary and moderated by Princeton Seminary PhD students. The online classes are designed to provide foundational engagement with major ideas in Biblical Studies (Old and New Testament), Theology, and World Christianity.

More than just a virtual classroom, the Certificate of Theology and Ministry program is a rich learning community. Students will learn the fundamental principles of Christian theology and ministry in small groups considering and practicing what it means to think, talk, and see the world theologically.

Become a part of the Princeton Seminary story

The online theology certificate is a virtual extension of the scholarly, socially relevant, and communally oriented Princeton Seminary campus experience, which has been training Christian leaders since 1812. Students who complete the online theology certificate become an indelible  part of a new chapter in the Princeton Seminary story. Though rigorous and challenging, the online courses are not taught at graduate-level intensity and do not carry graduate-level academic credit. The online theology certificate is designed for those seeking deeper ministerial and personal enrichment in a digital age. Students who successfully complete all course requirements will be awarded the Certificate of Theology and Ministry. The certificate carries 2 Continuing Education Units from Princeton Theological Seminary’s department of Continuing Education.
