Candler School of Theology prepares real people to make a real difference in the real world. Our mission is to educate faithful and creative leaders for the church’s ministries throughout the world. One of 13 seminaries of The United Methodist Church, we are grounded in the Christian faith and shaped by the Wesleyan tradition of evangelical piety, ecumenical openness and social concern.

Candler is part of Emory University, a premier research institution ranked among the top 20 national universities by U.S. World and News Report. An intellectually vital, internationally distinguished, and intentionally diverse university-based school of theology, Candler remains at the heart of Emory’s commitments and campus.

Many of the greatest minds in theological education are on Candler’s faculty. They could work anywhere in the world but they choose Candler because here we make room for teaching, scholarship, and serving the church — a rare opportunity in a research university. They are passionate about engaging students; challenging and reframing theological and social thought; serving parishes, denominational bodies, and communities locally and around the world; and driving positive transformation in the church and society.

Candler seeks creative and curious students who are called to join a Christian community to learn, pray, minister, and serve God and the church. Here they will experience rigorous academics, extensive field work, and intentional reflection – a combination offered by no other seminary.

Our alumni live their call. Seventy percent are pastors in churches; others minister in colleges, hospitals, the military, and social service organizations. They advocate for social change. They educate others. They lead Christian agencies and denominational bodies.

In short, Candler prepares real people to make a real difference in the real world.
