United Theological Seminary is a seminary of the United Methodist Church, but we are a broadly ecumenical community. We have a United Church of Christ House of Studies, a Baptist House of Studies and a Presbyterian House of Studies, and we teach courses that fulfill a variety of denominational requirements.

United will make special arrangements whenever feasible to ensure that all M.Div. students meet the academic requirements of their denominations. Denominational courses are generally taught when the number of students in need of them is sufficient. In most cases that will be every two to three years. Specific denominational courses are not always required for graduation, but many denominations require them for ordination or various forms of ministry. Please check the requirements prescribed by your denomination and discuss these with your faculty advisor.
