Our Mission

At Meadville Lombard Theological School, our mission is to educate students in the Unitarian Universalist tradition to embody liberal religious ministry in Unitarian Universalist congregations and wherever else they are called to serve. We do this to take into the world our Unitarian Universalist vision of justice, equity, and compassion.

Meadville Lombard Theological School is accredited by the Commission on Accrediting of the Association of Theological Schools (ATS)in the United States and Canada.

  • The Master of Arts in Religion (MAR) degree is a two-year graduate program for laypersons who seek an interdisciplinary approach to theological reflection, religious experience, and ethical action. 
  • The Master of Arts in Leadership Studies (MALS) degree program provides advanced work for lay leaders, ministers, and ministerial students in the theory and practice of leadership within Unitarian Universalist and other faith-based congregations and community-based ministries.
