Certificate in Hispanic Theology and Ministry

The Certificate in Hispanic Theology and Ministry (HTM) offers students a background in pastoral theology, spirituality, cross-cultural and related disciplines. The HTM certificate program is especially helpful for pastoral ministers who want an academic background in Latino/a theology, want to enhance their preparation for Hispanic / Latino/a ministry, or wish to complete a year's study in Catholic theology. 

The HTM Certificate consists of six or more courses (18 semesters hours). Two of the courses are electives, which gives students the latitude to explore a variety of issues in theological disciplines while still maintaining a Latino/a perspective.  The required courses include F4000 Religion in Context, plus three specifically Latino/a courses.  One of the three Latino/a topic courses may be substituted by a semester of either the ministry practicum or ministry immersion in a Latino(a) / Hispanic setting.

N.B.: A reading knowledge of Spanish is highly recommended but not necessary.
