Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs


The Catechism for Catechists Certificate consists in the successful completion of one, online non-credit course (TH 015) for students at any level that provides intellectual formation for catechists and can serve ideally as the doctrinal component for diocesan catechist certification programs. For those serving as parish catechists or teaching the Catholic faith in the Catholic school system, as well as those interested in general adult faith formation or RCIA, it enables students to develop an understanding and appreciation of the Catholic faith.
