Certificate in New Testament Greek

Through the University of Evansville’s Certificate in New Testament Greek, clergy, church professionals, and interested laypeople have the opportunity to gain thorough mastery of ancient Greek, the original language of the New Testament, at a fraction of the cost of the same courses taken for academic credit. Courses may be taken in the classroom or online.

The University of Evansville’s Certificate in New Testament Greek is designed for adults seeking to grow in their knowledge of the Bible for personal and ministerial enrichment. In a series of five courses, you will progress from the basics to advanced work in ancient Greek, the original language of the New Testament. You will learn how to use your Greek skills to enrich interpretation of the text, and you will gain facility in the use of scholarly tools for New Testament study. Upon completing the certificate, you will be able to read and study the New Testament in its original language with skill and confidence.

The courses taken for professional development and personal enrichment can be taken in the classroom or in an online format. To complete the program for academic credit, the courses must be taken on campus. Up to six courses may be taken for credit without formal enrollment in the University.
