Union Theological Seminary Admissions



On behalf of the entire Union Community, welcome to the Admissions home page of Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York. We are delighted that you have decided to take a closer look at Union.

New York City: the capital of the world. Far more than a concrete jungle where dreams of the artist and tycoon come true, for Union students, the city is an unparalleled training ground. Every day, the classroom comes alive on the city streets right outside Union's door as Union students grapple the grave issues of our time, marrying rigorous intellectual intensity with passionate social action. Come to the place where head and heart are electrified in the manner of Bonhoeffer, Niebuhr, Fosdick, Harrison, Cone, Forbes, Isasi-Díaz, Wink, Williams, and West.  Union incubates the next generations of progressive, faith-inspired leaders. We’d love to count you among our community.

Union’s mission is to form leaders who are deeply called to the work of justice and to shape visionaries whose values fuel their work for human betterment. In short, Union’s motto, Unitas, Veritas, and Communitas (unity, truth, and love), compels individuals to change the world.

So won't you come? I invite you to lend your passion and your gifts, your full selves to our ambitious work. The world is calling.

Come; take a closer look at Union.

To speak to an Admissions Counselor, please call 212-280-1556 between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday, Wednesday through Friday.
