These Graduate Certificates from Global University Will Jumpstart Your Career in Ministry

Have you completed your undergraduate degree and are curious about what graduate school can offer? Enrolling in a graduate certificate program at Global University is a great way to see what graduate courses are like! 

Global University states that the purpose of graduate studies certificate programs is to:

“(1) help them grow personally, professionally, and spiritually and equip them to become more effective leaders in their home, church and society; and (2) equip them for further academic pursuits and various ministries and leadership positions of the church and society.”

In today’s blog, we’ll share why you should consider enrolling in a graduate studies certificate program and which specific certificate programs are available from Global University. 

Why Consider a Graduate Certificate Program?

Applying for graduate school is an important decision. Depending on the career path you’re interested in, a master’s degree may or may not be needed. 

A graduate certificate program is a way to explore the area of study you are interested in without taking the full leap into grad school. 

At Global University, all courses required for graduate studies certificate programs are also available as a part of graduate degree programs and share the same academic requirements. So if you decide you love a particular area of study and want to pursue it further, you can easily transition from a certificate into a graduate degree program.
