Charlotte Campus Admissions
Evening and Saturday classes allow working adults to follow God's call while fulfilling the obligations of busy lives.
Common Calendar to Debut in Fall 2015
Union Presbyterian Seminary is pleased to announce that, beginning with the Fall term of 2015, our campuses in Charlotte and Richmond and the Extended Campus Program will move to a common calendar. The new academic calendar will have four terms: traditional Fall and Spring terms, and intensive 3-week terms in April and May. A few courses in Charlotte will extend beyond the end of May term into June. In the summer term in Richmond, some students may choose to participate in supervised ministry, while others may register for a Greek or Hebrew language course. Key dates for each term in the 2015-2016 academic year may be found on the registrar's page.
What a year in Charlotte! Groundbreaking began on the new campus buidings on the Sharon Presbyterian Church site July 21, 2011. The building was open for classes on September 11, 2012, and the entire Union Presbyterian Seminary community gathered for Convocation on September 15, celebrating the begining of the 201st academic session.
“The Charlotte campus offers an opportunity for men and women called into ministry and Christian education to pursue this calling while being able to support themselves and their families in their current vocations. The new building will ensure that the seminary has the physical resources necessary to continue nurturing such a wonderful educational opportunity into the future.” --Brian Blount, President of Union Presbyterian Seminary
Educational ministry is the life of the church
Union Presbyterian Seminary is committed to the vital challenge of preparing educators and pastors. As an extension of the Presbyterian Church (USA), Union Presbyterian Seminary began holding classes in February of 2002 on the campus of Queens University of Charlotte. Since opening, more than 70 students have graduated from the Charlotte campus. Many of these students are pursuing a second career in ministry. All are able to continue their careers in ministry and other fields while taking courses on weekends, at a pace to suit their current life situation. The Charlotte campus is nonresidential, with students commuting from seven states and coming from diverse denominational backgrounds. Union Presbyterian Seminary graduates serve as pastors and educators in more than 50 churches in seven states and South Korea.
