The Course of Study School is an experiential year round learning process for licensed local pastors in the United Methodist Church. Course of Study is managed directly by the General Board of Higher Education in Nashville, TN.
Wesley Theological Seminary is the Regional School for the Northeast Jurisdiction. We administrate programs on our campus in Washington DC as well as satellite programs in Philadelphia and the New England Annual Conference.
