Certificate Tracks are designed for students with or without a bachelor’s degree who desire to study Scripture, Messianic Jewish theology and related subjects at a graduate level in small increments. Each Certificate is a unit consisting of three classes with one tuition cost for the unit. Various certificates, related to specific fields of concentration, will be offered, e.g., Biblical Hebrew, Messianic Jewish Studies, Rabbinic Literature. Each certificate is designed to be completed in one year.
Every student desiring to study in one of MJTI’s Certificate Tracks is required to complete the Introduction to Messianic Jewish Studies (IMJS) certificate before moving on to other certificates. (See below). Students with a bachelor’s degree may apply directly to the Certificate Tracks in the Jewish Studies Program. Students without a bachelor’s degree must apply as a Mature Status Student.
