The Certificate in Theological Studies (CertThSt) is a qualification awarded to students who have completed at least seven papers for the Diploma in Theological Studies (DipThSt) but who choose to withdraw from that programme. The Diploma and Certificate are intended for students who may not wish to complete a full degree, but who may wish to take Theology papers at 100-level.

The Certificate in Theological Studies can be awarded after one year of full-time or its equivalent in part-time study. Students take seven papers, including at least six papers in the major subject areas of Theology, which are Biblical Studies, Christian Thought and History, and Pastoral Studies. They are also able to include one paper from outside of Theology in their Certificate.

The Certificate in Theological Studies (CertThSt) is also available through Distance Learning.
