Founded in 1979, the Center for Studies in the Wesleyan Tradition staffs, supervises, and enriches the Divinity School’s curricular and extracurricular offerings in Methodist and Wesleyan Studies and supports significant educational outreach programs designed for our United Methodist constituencies. In addition, the center develops and provides access to outstanding research resources for students and scholars of the broad Wesleyan tradition around the globe.
Summer Wesley Seminar
The center sponsors a four-week Summer Wesley Seminar as part of our program to promote research, writing, and publication in the field of Wesleyan studies. This seminar supports the work of scholars who are engaged in serious study of the Wesleyan heritage by making available the research resources of Duke University and by bringing together participants for conversation and study.
Academics & Educational Outreach
Through classes, educational programs, and student advising, CSWT ensures that Duke Divinity School is supporting Methodist and Wesleyan Studies and our United Methodist constituencies.
