At United, you’ll find an eclectic community of creatively engaged, socially committed and theologically adventurous people with an interest in exploring spirituality and the boundaries of knowledge. United is a place to explore your call, where you can discover God at work in your life and in the world.
We encourage a diverse student body with respect to culture, age, race, religious and ethnic backgrounds, physical abilities, sexual orientation and spiritual practice. Wherever you imagine your place of leadership and service to be, bring your questions, your life experience, your perspective, and prepare to be transformed.
To fully answer the question, Why United?, we invite you to spend a little time with us—on this site, on the phone, by email, or even better, during a visit to campus. We’re easy to find—United is conveniently located less than 20 minutes north from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Seriously seeking seminary?
We hope United is on your short list of theological schools. Finding the right fit is an important decision, and so we encourage you to pay us a visit. Let us know when you’ll be in the area, and we’ll arrange a day for you—talking to students, staff, faculty; attending classes, community worship, special events; learning about current art exhibitions, and generally helping you get a feel for life in the unique United community.
We often hear from students who enroll that personal interaction is what helped them come to a decision about their future.
