The Course of Study at Claremont is made up of two sessions. Two classes are held in each session, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. This allows a student to complete four classes in three weeks. Pre-class assignments make this shortened time possible.
The Western Jurisdiction Course of Study is a basic theological educational program of the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry. All 20 classes of the program are offered every summer at Claremont School of Theology. To complete a year of education, a student must take four classes. You are welcomed to Western Jurisdiction Couse of Study, whether your Annual Conference is in the Western Jurisdiction or in any other UMC Jurisdiction.
