Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary


Garrett-Evangelical is a graduate school of theology related to The United Methodist Church. While the majority of the faculty and the students are affiliated with the school’s denominational heritage, the seminary is ecumenical. The curricula emphasize theory and practice; they include the institutional centers for the Church and the Black Experience, Hispanic ministries, Asian-American ministries, Wesleyan studies, ethics and values, and women in ministry. The basic programs lead to the Master of Arts, Master of Divinity, or Master of Theological Studies degrees. The advanced professional program leads to the Doctor of Ministry degree, while the Doctor of Philosophy degree focuses on teaching and research for theological seminaries, the church and universities.
