Union has never been seminary as usual

Union Theological Seminary is currently experiencing a disruption to the on-campus phone service. If you are trying to contact a member of the administration, please use email.

Our job in the Office of Admissions is to assist you in your discernment and help you get to know us, wherever you are in the process.

Union students come here to wrestle with the complex social justice issues of our day, to discern, and to transform our world. Whether in the classroom, in field-education placements, or through the programming of initiatives like RISE Together, the Center for Earth Ethics and the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights and Social Justice—our community demonstrates revolutionary love in all that we do.

Since our founding, a prolific legacy of scholarship has sprung forth. Union students are imaginative, outside-the-box thinkers who are committed and compassionate. They come to New York City to learn from the renowned faculty at Union and our partner institutions, including Columbia University, Fordham, Jewish Theological Seminary and Drew Theological School.
