January and Summer Intensives and Weekend Courses

General Information

Garrett-Evangelical offers a sequence of courses in January and summer two-week formats (two two-week sessions in summer) that offer the opportunity - especially for those who are working - to sample seminary courses, to fulfill requirements for United Methodist ordination and certification, and to continue study in degree programs.

Local pastors who have completed the basic Course of Study and meet annual conference requirements for membership and ordination as elders may be admitted to master's courses in order to meet Advanced Course of Study requirements.

Courses which meet BGTS and certification requirements are noted on course schedules.

Most intensive courses require reading and sometimes written assignments to be completed in advance of the beginning of the course. The course syllabus is posted several weeks in advance of the term.  In order to change to a different term, use the drop down menu on the top of the page to select a deifferent term and then click 'Change'.

Many students find the two-week format, with everyone on the same schedule for classes, worship, and meals, help develop strong ties within the student community.

Each semester, a few courses are also offered in a Friday afternoon - Saturday morning format, meeting three weekends over the course of the semester. Those can be located on the course schedules.
