The Candler School of Theology offers programs leading to Master of Divinity, Master of Theological Studies, Master of Theology and Doctor of Theology degrees, and provides continuing education opportunities for clergy, church professionals, and laypersons. Degree programs associated with the work of the School of Theology include joint-degree programs with the Goizueta Business School, the School of Law, and the Rollins School of Public Health. Many of Candler's faculty also serve on the faculty of the Graduate Division of Religion's PhD program. The programs with the largest enrollment are the Master of Divinity and the Master of Theological Studies.
Their vision is to be an intellectually vital, internationally distinguished, and intentionally diverse university-based school of theology, committed to educating ministers, scholars of religion, and other leaders, expanding knowledge of religion and theology, deepening spiritual life, strengthening the public witness of the churches, and building upon the breadth of Christian traditions, particularly the Wesleyan heritage, for the positive transformation of church and world.
