Lifelong Formation

Unique formational opportunities for your personal, professional, and spiritual needs


Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary strongly believes that personal, professional, and spiritual formation does not end with a degree. It is a lifelong learning process that engages with present-day realities and looks ahead with hope, imagination, and a deep commitment to do all the good one can. With continuing education courses, workshops, certificates, webinars, and more, there is something for everyone.

Enhance your education with a certificate

Garrett offers a number of credit-bearing certificates that can assist you in discerning whether to pursue a full degree program; complete education requirements for a United Methodist certification; and/or personal and professional enrichment for your life, leadership, and thinking.

Take a course with our renowned faculty

Auditing a class is a good way to learn more about a topic of interest or to brush up on new information. The option to audit a course is open to anyone at the discretion of the faculty member. Auditors do not receive academic credit for the course, but can receive 1 CEU per credit hour.
