The Certificate in Biblical Counseling is an option if you want training in counseling from a Biblical worldview but are not yet ready to commit to the completion of a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling. This certificate program is beneficial if you have already completed a master’s degree in ministry but would like to strengthen your counseling skills. This certificate will help to equip you if you are in ministry and are asked periodically to counsel, but may have little or no training to do so.

This certificate is designed to:

  • Enhance your professional and academic credentials
  • Expand your marketability beyond the boundaries of
    a degree

Completed courses may be applied toward a master’s degree. In addition, the unique courses in the Certificate in Biblical Counseling program provide you with knowledge about psychological theory and counseling techniques. Courses for this certificate will be offered on the TMU campus once each week (on either Monday or Tuesday), providing a flexible schedule.

Hours required for completion: 18
