Certificate in Music and Worship


Campbell University Divinity School is now offering a certification in Music and Worship! All the courses will be offered as short-term intensives during the fall and spring in addition to special intensive courses during the summer.


The Certificate in Music and Worship is designed to enhance the skill set and expand the vision of those who will lead and teach in the church. The program requires a total of 18 credit hours of study, including professional music ministry classes, history and literature courses, and performance-oriented courses. Participants in this program enroll in the Divinity School through the regular admissions process as special (non-degree-seeking) students.

Students can pursue the Certificate in Music and Worship as non-degree-seeking students but still earn academic credit.  Students seeking to complete only the certificate program must apply and will be classified as special, non-degree-seeking students.  Certificate students will register for and pay for classes in the same manner as any other student, with one major exception. In order to make the certificates more widely accessible, certificate students may take up to two classes for a certificate on an audit basis. Click here for general tuition information. The following details apply:


1. Classes taken for audit are charged at a significantly reduced rate: $75/hour.
2. Audited classes will appear on the transcript with a grade of AU. These classes cannot be
transferred into a master’s degree. (Courses not taken for audit can be transferred to a
master’s degree.)
3. To be counted towards the requirements for a certificate, an audited class must be
accompanied by certification of satisfactory completion of the class from the professor.
