Welcome from the Director of Admissions and Student Services

I am regularly asked, “What sets United apart? What makes United distinctive?”


From its inception as the first seminary in North America with an explicitly ecumenical charter, United has been educating women and men for ministry in creative and effective ways. Today, United remains an institution with clear commitments to its students, the church, justice in the world, and the God we serve.

At United, we share an expansive definition of ministry, recognizing and celebrating the gifts of God’s people and the endless possibilities for ministry.

At United, theology is not a proposition to be accepted but a conversation to be joined.
The partners in that conversation cross the lines of denominations and faith traditions and include each student, the wisdom and knowledge of the faculty, the word of God alive in the world and revealed in scripture, the historic teachings of the church, the culture in which we live, works of art in all forms and media, and global voices.

At United, we share a historic commitment to global justice and social transformation.

At United, we have a cutting-edge curriculum that attends to the development of academic knowledge, spiritual depth, ethical commitment, and practical skill, all under the tutelage of a caring and accomplished faculty.

Look around these pages, ask us questions, and visit our campus. The admissions team is here to help you learn about us and discern whether United Theological Seminary is the place for your theological education.
