Theological Schools Offering a Masters of Divinity Degree

The Ministerial Fellowship Committee encourages you to contact seminaries of interest to obtain the latest materials on entrance requirements, programs of study, degree requirements, field education and internship opportunities, and financial aid. The Ministerial Fellowship Committee will accept a Master of Divinity degree from any seminary accredited by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) in the United States and Canada. ATS can be contacted at Aspirants attending theological schools that are not accredited by the Association of Theological Schools must seek an M. Div. Equivalency from the Ministerial Fellowship Committee.

Only Starr King School for the Ministry, and Meadville Lombard Theological School, are affiliated with the UUA. The UUA has a historic relationship and maintains close ties with Harvard Divinity School at While it is not required that you attend a UU seminary, by doing so, you will have greater access to UU history, polity, religious education and arts of ministry courses that may not be available at non-UU seminaries. Students associated with UU seminaries are also able to develop and enjoy a sense of community, and rich opportunities for academic discourse from a liberal religious perspective. The Ministerial Credentialing Director visits the UU schools on a regular basis and is available for consultation concerning the requirements for fellowship.

Other schools with a significant UU student presence include: Andover Newton Theological School, Seattle University, Iliff School of Theology, Lancaster Theological Seminary, Pacific School of Religion, Union Theological School, United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities and Wesley Theological Seminary. The Ministerial Credentialing Director visits non UU schools as needed and meets with non-UU students at General Assembly.
