The following bachelor’s degrees are available in their entirety through Continuing Studies by completing evening, weekend and online coursework. If a student wishes to earn a degree in another area offered at the College and they are available for daytime classes, then they may earn any degree offered by Spring Hill College.
The general studies curriculum is a flexible, individualized program of studies. Its basic advantage is that students have the opportunity to design a course of study that best suits their individual needs and interests.
The theology core requirements are designed to introduce students to serious, critical reflection on questions of ultimate meaning and transcendence. Courses range from the study of world religions and the human experience of faith in general, to an exploration of sacraments, liturgy, and sacred scriptures in the Christian tradition. Students, regardless of religious affiliation, are challenged to a deeper understanding of their own religious experience and the religious heritage of Western civilization.
Undergraduate Level Certificate Programs
Spring Hill College also offers undergraduate certificate programs through the Continuing Studies program in the following areas of study.

Spring Hill undergraduate students may pursue this certificate as a complement to any degree offered by the College. Students seeking this certificate only are classified as non-degree seeking students and must meet non-degree admission requirements. Students must achieve a minimum grade point average of 2.5 in the certificate courses and complete the certificate within four years of declaring the certificate and completing the first course. Transfer credit is not accepted toward this certificate.
The Certificate of Theological Studies (CTS) is designed for students who have not yet completed a college degree. The CTS program requires thirty credit hours of coursework selected from these categories: Biblical (six credit hours), Historical (six credit hours), Moral (six credit hours), Pastoral (three credit hours), Systematic (three credit hours), and six additional credit hours in approved elective coursework and the successful completion of the comprehensive experience. By completion of further requirements, the CTS may also be expanded into a Bachelor of Arts in Theology. The CTS program requires a grade of B- or higher in all coursework.
The Continuing Education Certificate of Theological Studies is awarded to students who complete the entire thirty-hour curriculum of the Theological Studies degree programs on an audit basis rather than credit. All courses must be formally audited and students must submit a letter from the instructor of each course certifying regular attendance.
