Continuing Education Program
Christ the King Seminary offers a comprehensive continuing education program for those who wish to enrich their Christian lives, increase their knowledge of theology and scripture, or better prepare for ministry. The curriculum provides for academic, pastoral, spiritual and personal preparation. Students may choose to attend classes purely for personal enrichment, or they may pursue a Certificate of Continuing Education in Theological Studies. The continuing education program offers students ample course selections during the fall, spring and summer semesters.
Course topic areas include:
- Sacred Scripture
- Pastoral Skills
- Church History
Certificate of Continuing Education in Theological Studies
enrolled in the continuing education program have the option of pursuing a
Certificate of Continuing Education in Theological Studies. Students may
decide to enter the certificate track and begin earning CEUs (continuing
education units) at any time during their studies by completing a Continuing
Education Application through the registrar's office.
The Certificate of Continuing Education in Theological Studies is awarded to a student after the successful completion of 12 CEUs (continuing education courses/units).
Successful completion of a CEU requires:
A minimum of 80% class attendance
of a 3-5 page reflection paper, or similar requirement as determined by the
course instructor. (e.g., What
did you identify with in this course? What were you challenged by? What may be
applicable to your ministry and/or life?)
Students opting to take continuing education courses for personal enrichment
are not required to complete tests, papers or assignments and therefore do not
receive a grade. A non-graded course
cannot be considered for CEU's toward a certificate.
Theological Field Education
Students may participate in a
supervised field practicum as part of their studies if they wish but are
not required to do so. Assignments vary and are based on the
individual student's learning goals, strengths and needs. A theological
reflection component connects the experience with the student's
studies. Examples of assignments include urban, suburban and rural
Spiritual and Personal Formation
Students may participate in spiritual and personal formation if they wish, but are not required to do so. Programs are individualized for each student and include such activities as retreats, assessments, workshops, seminars and spiritual direction. Students also complete an annual assessment with the Director of Lay Formation.
