Note: Besides this graduate certificate, we have another option that allows students to earn a non-credit Certificate in Spiritual Direction. Non-credit and Graduate Certificate students participate together in the same cohorts and classes, however, because the non-credit students do not earn academic credits which can be transferred into a Master’s program, their price point for the program is $2,000 less. This option provides an affordable way for some students to receive the training necessary to practice as a spiritual director, especially in non-academic contexts.
