In January 2012, Wesley began an innovative program for laity to enroll in non-credit courses in biblical studies, church history, theology and practical ministry. Students who complete six (6) courses may receive a "Certificate in Christian Studies" from Wesley Theological Seminary. We welcome all interested participants who desire theological enrichment and being equipped for a particular ministry to register for this program.
Course sessions will be held at Wesley's main campus, 4500 Massachusetts Avenue, NW Washington, DC on weekends. Each weekend session is held from 1pm - 9pm on Friday and 9am - 1pm on Saturday with breaks. Each course is comprised of two weekend sessions scheduled approximately one month apart and are taken concurrently with the Course of Study Weekend Program.
Please note: Courses in the Certificate Program will not earn graduate-level credit and cannot be transferred to a Wesley degree program.
Registration for the summer and fall terms 2013 are now open! To register, please download the form, complete it and return it with any applicable fees. New students should send forms to the Admissions office. Returning students can forward them directly to Sara Sheppard.
