Empowering liberal religious leadership in ordained Unitarian Universalist ministry
Our Master of Divinity degree program provides the academic and experiential grounding you need to minister effectively in our multifaith, multicultural world. Students seeking Unitarian Universalist ordination are guided step-by-step through the process.
Building a foundation in theology, ethics, and religious history
This degree is appropriate for those preparing for doctoral studies in religion, those seeking a grounding in religious studies to support vocational work in education, community organizing, social justice activism, or interreligious engagement, and those interested in religious studies for personal enrichment.
As a Unitarian Universalist identity institution, Meadville Lombard is an intentionally pluralist learning community committed to furthering the transformative, justice-making potential of liberal religion. We firmly believe that justice-making and spiritual growth are bound together, and our curriculum design reflects it. We emphasize that leadership requires deep accountability in communities and prepares students to be effective leaders in our multiracial, multicultural world.
