At Chaminade, we believe you should never stop learning. That’s why we’ve created a number of programs aimed at helping you expand your horizons—outside of a traditional degree program.
Certificate in Pastoral Ministry
Providing training for ministry in the Church, this certificate is designed for individuals who are currently serving in ministry or wish to serve in ministry but do not wish to earn a degree.
Certificate of Spiritual Direction & Pastoral Counseling
Enhance skills and broaden perspectives on issues and ideas affecting the Church and society. The Master in Pastoral Theology (MPT) program awards certificates of study in both of its degree concentrations.
Graduate Certificate in Business Administration
Designed for professionals who want to develop a new area of expertise. The Certificate Program provides an efficient way to advance knowledge and skills, enhance professional networks, and advance marketability and career prospects.
Montessori Certificate Program
The non-degree Montessori Certificate Program is for students seeking Montessori training without a degree. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a Chaminade University Montessori Certificate which may be used towards the recommendation of an AMS Montessori Credential at the Early Childhood Level. Eight of the twelve courses are delivered online and the remaining four courses are hybrid, which require attending a four-week summer intensive on-ground session.

Chaminade University’s Institutes expand the boundaries of knowledge and expertise of many different topics. All institutes are held on our campus and offer a holistic format that allows for a hands-on learning experience. So go ahead, enrich yourself and find a field that interests you.
