In keeping with Baylor University's policies and procedures, the Certificate Program has postponed all scheduled seminars and is not scheduling any seminars until at least Spring 2021.
In addition to the variety of online courses that the Truett Online Certificate Program offers, we also offer in-person two-day seminars that can serve as electives toward a Primary or Advanced-level Certificate.
Every year, a variety of in-person continuing education seminars are taught by Truett’s faculty. Progress in any online Truett Certificate course can be “paused” in order to focus on one set of assignments at a time, and there are no prerequisites to attend any of these continuing education seminars.
The precise schedule of lectures, breakout sessions, meals, and other activities may vary depending on the event. Detailed schedules and additional information will be posted online and/or provided via email.
Each seminar will follow this basic Friday-to-Saturday timeline:
Friday: 11:00 - 12:00 “Bring Your Own Lunch” (optional)
12:00 - 8:00 Three class sessions, dinner, and breakouts
Saturday: 8:00 - 5:00 Four class sessions, meals, and breakouts
Each subject is likely to only be offered once in each location and will vary annually. Broad categories generally include:
- Practical Ministry Skills
- Old and New Testament Scripture
- Faculty expertise and their research/writing
- Theological Matters
Where are the Seminar Courses held?
Every year, Truett offers several Advanced-level Seminar Courses that are typically hosted in the Truett Seminary classrooms on the Baylor University campus. Courses may occasionally be offered in alternative locations.
What is the typical schedule for a Seminar Course?
These two-day intensive seminars are held on a Friday and Saturday and are typically taught by Truett’s faculty. Any active registration for an online Truett Certificate course can be “paused” during the time frame of a seminar, so a participant only needs to worry about one set of assignments at a time.
A typical seminar schedule is as follows:
|Friday||11:00am - 8:30pm (brown bag lunch optional and dinner provided)|
|Saturday||8:00am - 8:30pm (coffee and lunch provided)|
Who can attend a seminar?
Anyone is welcome to attend a Seminar Course. These courses are taught at a "lightweight" masters degree level but are appropriate for well-studied laypeople, Truett Certificate students, and pastors/ministers of all levels.
If you have not taken a course with the Truett Certificate Program in the past but would like to attend a Seminar please contact our office at email@example.com or 254-710-6351.
