This one-year certificate program is designed for students who wish to participate in the academic, spiritual, and communal life of CDSP without earning a degree.
For example, it is suitable for those who already possess the M.Div. or its equivalent from another seminary and who wish to pursue special study of the Anglican tradition. It might also be appropriate for persons seeking ordination under special canonical provisions of the Episcopal Church.
Summary of Requirements
Earning the C.A.S. requires one-year of full-time study or the part-time equivalent. While at CDSP, the student will work with a faculty advisor. The core of the program will be work in four basic areas of Anglican Studies: History, Theology and Ethics, Liturgics, and Pastoral Studies (including Homiletics).
Additional courses may be taken at other Graduate Theological Union (GTU) schools as well as at CDSP. A total of eight three-unit courses is required for the C.A.S. and will normally include at least one course in each of the core areas listed above.
