Do you feel called to spiritual leadership? Have you been longing for time to think more deeply about life and engage more effectively in responding to injustices and suffering? Has your heart been moved by your participation in a religious community, and have you found yourself considering spiritual leadership?
At Starr King School for the Ministry we place radical trust in the possibilities within you. As the only Unitarian Universalist and multi-religious seminary with a hundred-year liberal and liberating tradition, we approach education as an engaged, relational practice through which human beings develop their special gifts and deepen their calling to be of service in the world.
Because of our mission and identity as a Unitarian Universalist and multi-religious theological school, we welcome students from a variety of religious backgrounds, callings, and identities. Our students embrace a variety of spiritual paths, including Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Religious Humanism, Paganism, indigenous religious traditions, and many others.
Our Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree program prepares students for Unitarian Universalist ministry, other denominational ministry, and progressive religious leadership in society.
Our Master of Arts in Social Change (MASC) degree prepares students for leadership in society through institutions and vocations that serve the common good by working for justice, equity and compassion.
Both degree programs can be paired with the Chaplaincy Concentration.
The Certificate in Unitarian Universalist Studies is ideal for seminarians attending non-UU schools, enabling them to study the full complement of Unitarian Universalist topics relevant to ministry and religious leadership and expected by the Ministerial Fellowship Committee.
The Certificate in Multi-Religious Studies engages students in exploring the intersections and interactions among the world’s diverse religious traditions.
The Certificate in Chaplaincy Studies enables you to study the full complement of Chaplaincy topics to help you understand the types of Chaplaincy positions available today, go through a formation process at your own pace, and become prepared to minister to the world.
