In his apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis calls all baptized Christians “missionary disciples” (see 119–21). A “significant pastoral challenge” related to living out this vocation is the “formation of the laity and the evangelization of professional and intellectual life” (102). In order to meet this challenge, the Augustine Institute Graduate School offers the Graduate Certificate in Missionary Discipleship.
The graduate certificate at the Augustine Institute is an honorary designation that testifies to a student’s successful completion of a substantial course of studies in Catholic theology.
The certificate is awarded upon successful completion of six courses:
Nondegree-seeking students who wish to take graduate courses will be considered on a space-available basis. Degree-seeking students will always be given priority in course registration.
Nondegree seeking students may request to transfer from nondegree-seeking status to degree-seeking status by completing the admissions process. In the case of admission to degree-seeking status, all courses taken for credit at the institute as a nondegree-seeking student would count toward the completion of the MA, provided the minimum grade point average is achieved and maintained.
...I am eternally grateful for what the Augustine Institute has done for my soul, my family and my apostolate. If you feel called to further your education and theological studies, I cannot recommend anything better than the Augustine Institute.
...service to the new evangelization, helping equip my students to engage post-modernity and propose the timeless teachings of Christ in a timely way for our age.”
the education and human formation we received as students at the Augustine Institute. From the outstanding professors to the rich curriculum, everything lends itself to the development of the intellect and the zeal to bring Jesus Christ to the world. I would highly recommend the Augustine Institute to anyone looking to achieve excellence in knowledge, wisdom and virtue.”
...pressing tasks we now face, and no one in this country does it with more energy, depth, and skill than the Augustine Institute.”
