Certificate in Theological Overview (CTO) is a one-year part-time study program consisted of thirty times of weekly classroom meetings over the three terms of the academic year. The program is a survey of the various subjects of Christian systematic theology, wide in range, and basic and essential in depth, of a typical seminary theological education at the certificate level. It is suitable for those who prefer to study introductory theology in English.
