Course Memo

United Methodist History, Doctrine, and Polity II is the second United Methodist Studies course and is intended to provide a broad overview of the theology, history, and governance structures of The United Methodist Church and its predecessor bodies. This course, in particular, focuses on the theological perspectives of the Methodist Movements that emerged in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, which later came to be embodied in the Articles of Religion and the doctrinal standards of a multi-national denomination. This course is designed to fulfill one half of the credits required for United Methodist students seeking ordination in The United Methodist Church. The course will incorporate a mixture of lectures and small group discussions, and students will be evaluated through short papers, a presentation, and a notebook project. Please email to see if space is available and include proof of vaccination with your request.
