The Certificate of Graduate Studies in Cosmogony, offered exclusively online, will prepare you to methodically explain the origins of the world and universe based on the understanding of science and faith. You will study the foundations of scientific inquiry along with key theories, methods and models in both biology and chemistry. This program, delivered from a Christian perspective, interconnects with philosophy, biblical studies or the sciences. If you are a nondegree-seeking student, you may complete and earn one certificate without being admitted to a master’s program; and the certificate can later be applied towards an M.S. in Cosmogony degree or an M.A. in Practical Theology – Cosmogony. To discuss this program with an admissions counselor by phone or in person in Virginia Beach, call 800.373.5504.
