VST is called to educate and form thoughtful, engaged and generous Christian leaders for the church and the world in the 21st century. 

The Graduate Diploma in Theological Studies is a post-graduate diploma designed to provide opportunities for interested persons to complete a focused program of advanced studies in a given area able to be supported by VST. The program may serve to prepare a student for work in a Master of Theology (ThM) program; provide scholarly enhancement of ministerial practice; or provide disciplined focus in an area of theological study for personal interest. This program may be of particular interest for those who may not be able to undertake a full graduate degree program but who wish an organized program of studies culminating in certification.

The Graduate Diploma is a 12-credit hour program, consisting of four 3-credit hour courses at the 700-level or above. At least three of the four courses must be in one chosen area of concentration.

For advanced VST diplomas, a master’s in Theological Studies is required as a pre-requisite. There are two application deadlines per year: March 15th and October 15th. Students can begin their studies in September or January. To learn more about tuition and fees visit:
