The Certificate in Religious Education (C.R.E.) is a 36-credit, continuing education version of the Master of Religious Education degree program at LIM. All courses are taken for continuing education credits (CEUs), at the current continuing education tuition rate at LIM. In pursuing the Certificate in Religious Education, students follow the same overall curriculum as candidates for the Master of Religious Education degree. Certificate requirements consist of:

CEU or “certificate” students receive continuing education units as defined by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Three CEUs are granted for each course in the program and are recorded on a Loyola CEU transcript. These are kept in the permanent records of the Office of Student Records.

Full participation in the learning group’s activities and reading assignments are required of CEU students. Papers, examinations, or other work assigned for evaluation of graduate students in common curriculum courses are not required by Loyola of CEU students, except as specifically required in the focus area courses. For the focus area courses, CEU students must submit special CEU written assignments. All CEU students who successfully complete the 36-hour program will be granted a Certificate of Religious Education.
