Greetings from Candler School of Theology at Emory University, where for more than 100 years we have educated faithful and creative leaders for the church’s ministries throughout the world. One of 13 seminaries of The United Methodist Church and one of only five United Methodist university-based theology schools, Candler strives to be authentic in our discipleship and relevant in our work, giving us a “realness” that is distinct in theological education.

This catalog offers a glimpse of how Candler prepares real people to make a real difference in the real world. It includes a look at the rich variety of people and theological perspectives present here, an introduction to our esteemed faculty, a listing of carefully constructed curricula for all our degree programs, descriptions of our international study opportunities and our student groups, an overview of resources at Emory, and much more. Even so, this is still just a glimpse. To get the full picture, explore the Candler website, schedule a virtual campus visit, or chat with an admissions representative to see for yourself what’s real at Candler.
