A Certificate for GTU Scholars

GTU’s Flora Lamson Hewlett Library

The Center for Swedenborgian Studies (CSS)  offers a 6-course certificate program designed for current GTU M.A. and PhD students who wish to develop expertise in Swedenborgian Studies. It is also available to current GTU M.Div. students who are not preparing for a vocation in the Swedenborgian Church.

One course may be devoted to a thesis. No more than two courses may be directed study (in addition to a thesis course if that is selected). Students who wish to include the CSS within the scope of a degree program should speak with the Dean of the GTU and the Dean of the Center as early in their academic journey as possible.

The Certificate must be completed within four years but can be completed in as few as two years.
