Duke Divinity School offers a variety of certificates that can be earned alongside our degree programs. These programs give students the opportunity to focus their coursework on a particular area of ministry or study.

We also offer the standalone Certificate in Theology and Health Care.

Some of the degree-based certificates enable students to receive more focused training in a particular denomination, such as the Certificate in Anglican Studies or the Certificate in Baptist Studies. Other certificates enable deeper engagement with particular social issues, such as the Certificate in Prison Studies and the Certificate in Gender, Sexuality, Theology and Ministry.

In addition to certificates available through Duke Divinity, Duke University offers a number of graduate certificates for master’s and doctoral degrees. Find out more about Duke certificates. 


Current students may access certificate specifics and declare certificates on the Divinity School Intranet (NetID login required).
