Certificate in Missions Studies The Certificate in Missions Studies is designed for students who are not seeking a degree, but desire a basic theological background for international ministry. The International Mission Board does not require a specific curriculum for career appointment, but Southeastern encourages those who need 20 or more seminary hours prior to IMB appointment to follow this directed course of study. For those students who begin the Certificate and later wish to pursue a degree, the Certificate Requirements feed directly into the M.A. in Intercultural Studies.

Admissions Requirements Students must complete the credit-only application process.
