Students may enroll in any course offered at  Mercy U  Lay Theology Institute in any order.

For those who wish to complete the  certificate program the following are required:                                                                     

  • 2 Systematic Theology
  • 1 Moral Theology
  • 1 Scripture
  • 1 Church History or Philosophy
  • 1 Elective from any subject area

Courses in the history of  theology (e.g., an overview of patristic theology or medieval theology) count towards the systematic requirement. Each course runs for four weeks.  We anticipate offering three courses  per year:  one each  in the Fall, Winter, and Spring.  Meetings will be held on  Wednesday nights or Saturday mornings at the instructor’s  discretion.  The offerings will be arranged so that it is possible—though not necessary– to complete the program in two years.

Tuition: $125 per course*
