(Contains General Information)
 
 
 



Course of Study is a program of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, administered by the seminary, for the purpose of educating licensed local pastors in the United Methodist Church.

Saint Paul School of Theology Course of Study classes are held:

  • Greater Kansas City area
  • Springfield, Missouri
  • Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Important Notice! The Course of Study Basic Five-Year Curriculum has been revised by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry (GBHEM). The new curriculum is effective January 2015 and will start with the 2015 Winter Session. We are in the process of preparing new Advance Assignments based upon the new book lists (also prepared by the GBHEM) and hope to post this information by mid-July. You will note that our 2014-2015 Course Schedule reflects the new course numbers and names. Refer to the Revised Curriculum - January 2015 for a complete listing of the new courses, as well as a list of exchange credits that will show you how the courses you have already completed compare with the new curriculum. This will allow you to plan what courses you need to finish the program.

You will see that the COS Applications link includes only the registration forms for the 2014 Fall Sessions. The 2015 Sessions applications will be posted as soon as the Advance Assignments are updated.

The COS Handbook has also been updated. Please refer to the 2014 COS Handbook.
