Pilot Seminary Bridge Certificate Program

The following optional workshops will be offered to ALL current and prospective Ashland Theological Seminary students in a Summer 2012 pilot program for a minimal cost ($50.00 per 6 hours).

The purpose of the program is to provide students with the skills necessary to succeed in seminary.  By completing 30 hours of the following workshops, students will receive an ATS certificate of completion and a bookstore voucher.  Following these optional pilot offerings, the workshops will be refined as necessary before the program is offered at all of the Ashland Theological Seminary Centers.

Each workshop in preparing to study Biblical languages will meet on a Friday evening and Saturday on two weekends.  Please note that completing one or more of these workshops does not in any way guarantee admission to Ashland Theological Seminary.  In addition, credit will not be given toward a Master's Degree for the completion of any or all of these capacity-building workshops.  Our prayer is that these workshops will equip you to continue your journey of life-long learning with increased confidence and competence.
