Academics


Union Theological Seminary historically has been and remains committed to an intellectual analysis of the claims of faith that is robust, sincere, and of the highest academic quality. The theological disciplines as practiced here take seriously the realities of the world beyond the Seminary. They engage with the challenges posed to faith by secular thought, religious diversity, and the global human experience.

Through our academic programs, we are also committed to a moral response to the challenges the world poses to Christian ethical standards and values, affirming the principle that God's love does not discriminate based on race, gender, sexuality, disability status, wealth or any other characteristic. Our pedagogy therefore embraces a radical critique of systems of injustice that violate this principle.

Our academic programs also seek to reap the benefit of the special opportunities and challenges that arise from our location in New York City, responding creatively to the challenges of a diverse, dynamic global metropolis characterized by extremes of wealth and poverty, inclusion and exclusion.
