July 14, 1999

UTS is pleased to introduce three Certificate Programs, offering advanced knowledge in Unificationism, Christian theology, and Counseling. The Certificate Programs are available to members without a college degree or affiliates of the Family Federation who are not members.

Unificationists looking for a deeper understanding of church teachings and traditions will benefit from the Certificate Program in Advanced Unification Studies.

Those working in the area of Christian ministry can increase their knowledge of Christianity by taking the Certificate Program in Christian Studies.

The Certificate Program in Pastoral Counseling provides professional training in personal and family counseling.

In the future, we anticipate developing two more certificate programs. A Certificate Program in Church Leadership and Management will aid church leaders seeking training in practical skills of leading and managing an organization, and a Certificate Program in Unification Leadership will guide friends of the Unification movement and members of the Family Federation for World Peace in an introductory study of Rev. Moonís teachings.

Each Certificate Program typically consist of 6 courses. In addition, many individual courses are available.

You enroll in a class simply by contacting the registrar and paying the tuition, registration and materials fees. Tuition is $350 for a course in a certificate program or a non-credit course.
