Licensing School

The Emory Course of Study School, Office of Methodist Studies, the South Georgia Conference, and the North Georgia Conference work together to provide one educational program for the licensing of all certified candidates for ministry. The Division of Ordained Ministry, an entity of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, dictates the curriculum for licensing by providing guidelines based on competence in skills of ministry rather than academic achievement. For further information, contact Amy Walker via email at or call 404.727.4587.

Licensing School at Emory is offered in a ten-day, full-time residential format every year in the spring.
