Certificate in Anglican Studies

The Certificate in Anglican Studies is designed for those pursuing ordination in the Anglican Church.  This program is comprised of four graduate-level courses that cover canonical areas of learning and equip participants for a lifetime of ministry in the Anglican Church. Some courses may be taken for seminary credit  through our partnership with Gordon-Conwell.


Courses should be taken in order as they build on each other.  However, most courses will be offered three times a year (spring, summer, fall).

  1. Introduction to Anglicanism (not available for credit at GCTS)
  2. Anglican History & Theology I: Foundations
  3. Anglican History & Theology II: Development of the Tradition
  4. Worship in the Prayer Book Tradition


  • $900 per course for the dually enrolled student with Gordon-Conwell
  • $350 per course for the student not seeking accredited education


Courses will are offered as a hybrid of online lectures, video-conference discussions with a cohort and an academic tutor, reading, and assignments.
