United Theological Seminary


Challenge. Organize. Lead.

If you feel called to lead–but not necessarily in the church–consider United’s Master of Arts in Leadership (M.A.L.). You’ll gain both the theological framework and secular leadership skills you need to become an effective leader in a variety of contexts. Build a non-profit. Start a social enterprise. Infuse your activism with theological insight. Whatever your leadership challenge, an education at United will support your specific vision for making an impact on the world.

Interested in the academic study of theology and religion? Consider our M.A. as well!
