Garrett-Evangelical offers a two course United Methodist Studies sequence (40-674 UM Studies: Wesley & the 19th
Century and 40-673 UM Studies: 20th
Century to Present) that meets this ordination requirement. Each of the courses deals with history, doctrine, and polity; both must be completed to satisfactorily fulfill the ordination requirement. For transfer purposes, 40-674 satisfies the requirement for doctrine and one-half history and 40-673 satisfies the requirement for polity and one-half history. (Prior to fall 2012, 1 unit of 40-674 was 5 quarter hours and 1 unit of 40-673 was 4 quarter hours).
Beginning fall 2013, distinct courses for UM History, Doctrine, and Polity are also offered online.
