Course of Study
- Course of Study (COS) is a 20-course program that educates clergy in the Methodist church. There are dozens of licensing schools that administer the COS. DWU will grant up to 24 credits for scholars who have completed or are currently completing COS from any qualified licensing school.
- Credits granted for either program can be applied toward DWU's online degree programs. You can choose to complete a 100% online associate or bachelor's degree in either Nonprofit Administration or Organizational Leadership.
Combine your COS courses with your DWU courses and life experience to earn your associate or bachelor's degree!
