Certificiate in Anglican Studies (CAS)

Certificiate in Anglican Studies (CAS)

The Certificate of Anglican Studies (CAS) is a non-credit, non-degree program of instruction designed to provide students who have already studied the basic theological disciplines at a non-Anglican seminary with a robust understanding of the Anglican tradition. While the CAS is not intended to be a substitute for a residential education at an Anglican seminary, it is an ideal program for those with an MAR or MDiv (or equivalent) from an accredited institution of higher learning who are transitioning into Anglicanism and cannot relocate.

The CAS program is four courses.  It can be completed entirely in residence at our Ambridge campus, online, or through a combination of residential and online study.  There is no residential requirement for the CAS.

Residential and Online students generally take 1-2 courses per term in Fall, Spring, and Summer.  Most students graduate after 1 year of part-time study.
