Graduates of the Core Program receive a certificate of recognition and a special S.T.E.M. stole.

An additional sixty hours of elective study or activities, developed in consultation with each student's assigned advisor and the S.T.E.M. Dean is required for graduation.  Electives can include seminars, new leadership activities in your church, preaching, or reports on books, tapes, or videos.
