The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Theology and Interreligious Engagement (Cert.T.I.E.) is intended to provide university graduates with a general university-level foundation in theological and practice-based approaches to religious pluralism and interreligious engagement through the exploration of religious texts and histories, spiritualities and practices, and theologies and theories of religions.

The main focus of the conjoint certificate is to provide the necessary academic foundation for those working in multi-faith contexts as well as those who are interested in developing this area for professional development—for example, hospital, military, prison or school chaplains, social workers from particular religious perspectives including but not limited to Buddhist, Christian, and Muslim. This program offers flexibility to address relevant personal interests and professional contexts as well as religious concentrations.

The second focus is to provide necessary background in the areas of religious texts and histories, theologies of religion and contextual practices for those interested in applying to various degrees such as the Master of Psychospiritual Studies, Master of Divinity, Master of Theological Studies and Master of Art in Theological Studies.

The Emmanuel College certificates are only available to domestic applicants.

Admission Requirements

Admission requirements for the Certificate are the same as for admission into basic degree programs: applicants must have a bachelor’s degree from a recognized university, college, or Indigenous Institute with a CGPA of 2.70.
