Union Theological Seminary

Union Theological Seminary

Union Theological Seminary has always embodied the freedom to learn and the freedom to teach—ideals that may be more critical than ever to churches and society at this moment in history. Founded in 1836, Union forged a new vision for theological education: to center ministerial training in an urban context so that academic excellence and personal faith might respond to the needs of the city.

Today, a new Union in a world city remains faithful to that vision. With roots that are firmly planted in the Protestant, Reformed tradition, the Seminary continues to reform itself in response to the changing needs of the world and an evolving understanding of what it means to be faithful.

Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York is a seminary and a graduate school of theology established in 1836 by founders “deeply impressed by the claims of the world upon the church.” Union prepares women and men for committed lives of service to the church, academy, and society. A Union education develops practices of mind and body that foster intellectual and academic excellence, social justice, and compassionate wisdom. Grounded in the Christian tradition and responsive to the needs of God’s creation, Union’s graduates make a difference wherever they serve.

COVID-19 Visitor Policy

As of August 1, 2021, Union Theological Seminary will become a “vaccinated campus.” This policy is not a general deterrent to visitors and friends but a way to continue as a welcoming, hospitable campus for all who seek to enter. We recognize that, especially for alumni/ae and friends in the wider community, Union is a place they value as “home.” However, this temporary policy grows out of the reality that we are not only an educational institution with offices, classrooms, chapels, and gathering spaces. We are also a residential community where members live in close proximity to another, some in congregate living-spaces. Given the ongoing reality of COVID-19, we want to ensure wise measures are taken to support public health for our residences and for all community members who study and work here. We look [...]
