United Methodist Course of Study School

United Methodist Course of Study School

The Course of Study School educates and trains local pastors in The United Methodist Church. To be admitted, students must be certified candidates for ordained ministry, have completed the requirements for license as a local pastor, have been tested in language skills proficiency through a process determined by the annual conference, and received endorsement of the annual conference Board of Ordained Ministry.

The five-year Course of Study is conducted in two formats, Summer School and Saturday School. Summer Course of Study School is comprised of two, one and half week modules each summer for part-time and full-time local pastors. Successful completion of both modules fulfills one year of study. Course of Study is offered throughout the year in a variety of modules for part-time local pastors only via  Saturday School. After successful completion of either the summer or Saturday program, students are eligible to apply for the Advanced Course of Study School

The Course of Study School at Emory is sponsored by The United Methodist Church, the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, the Southeastern Jurisdictional Administrative Council, and Candler School of Theology.
