New Wesleyan Partnership Offers College Credit to Pastors in Training

A new partnership between Wesleyan College, Macon, Georgia, and the United Methodist General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM) will offer college credit for women who are enrolled in GBHEM’s pastoral training program, the Course of Study. The Course of Study is designed for those who wish to serve as local pastors in The United Methodist Church and possibly pursue ordination as elders without taking the traditional seminary route.

Women who are enrolled in one of Wesleyan College’s online degree programs (Business Administration, Accounting, or Applied Psychology) and who are enrolled in the Course of Study program may earn 36 credits toward their Wesleyan degree (120 credits total) upon successful completion of the entire Course of Study. All Wesleyan College courses required for graduation will be taught in an online format.

Interested students must apply to Wesleyan College’s online degree program at For more information, contact Jessica Tucker by email at or by calling 478-757-3994.

For more information about ordination through the Course of Study, contact Rev. Shannon Conklin-Miller, GBHEM associate general secretary for the Division of Ordained Ministry, by email at or by calling (615) 340-7417.

Wesleyan students choose to study here because they want to test their limits. The bar is set high because our students demand it. First for Women isn’t just a claim to fame - it’s a philosophy that explains why Wesleyan women continue to make history today.
