The Certificate of Graduate Studies (CGS) in Bible and Theology is a graduate-level certificate offered in English, Chinese, and Spanish. The CGS can be completed fully online or by taking resident classes in Dallas or at any of the seminary’s approved extensions. More information on the CGS in Chinese and Spanish can be found at the end of this section.

The Certificate of Graduate Studies in Bible and Theology provides a flexible course of study for: •Christian laypersons who desire a short program of seminary studies to equip them for effective ministry in the local church or elsewhere; •those who wish to begin seminary studies on a trial basis to help them determine if they desire to pursue a degree program;* •Christian workers with limited time available for seminary studies (those who intend to enter a professional ministry are encouraged to apply for admission to one of the master’s-level degree programs); •missionary candidates who anticipate service in nonprofessional ministries whose mission board requires graduate study in Bible and theology; •college graduates who want a year of seminary studies as a supplement to their undergraduate work; and •spouses of current DTS students who want to complete a program of graduate seminary studies. *

Students should contact the Advising Center as soon as they decide to pursue a degree.

Goals

All students in the CGS program will be able to: • demonstrate a general knowledge of the Bible; • evidence a general knowledge of premillennial theology and an ability to support their theological views; • evidence an increasing likeness to Christ as manifested in love for God, love for others, and the fruit of the Spirit; and • evidence an interest and involvement in the local church or other ministries with which they are associated.
