Welcome to Union Presbyterian Seminary—electronically, speaking. I am delighted that you are visiting our site and I hope you will take some time to explore. There is much happening here at this seminary that has just ventured enthusiastically and prayerfully into its third century of theological education. Since moving from Hampden-Sydney college in 1898, we have developed exciting curricula across three different educational platforms. I hope you will have opportunity at some point to visit both our physical campus locations. Until you do, take a virtual tour of Richmond and Charlotte. I’d also encourage you to read more about how we do residential theological education at Richmond, theological education on the weekends—Friday nights and Saturdays—at Charlotte, and a hybrid of online and intensive residential study through our Extended Campus Program. Having visited the pages about our platforms, take a closer look at the information the different degree programs that we offer through those platforms: M.Div.; M.A.C.E.; Dual M.Div./M.A.C.E. Th.M. ; and Ph.D. After an intensive multiyear assessment and revision process, our faculty has developed a new curriculum for the first three of those degree programs. It is the faculty’s way of ensuring that what we teach and the way we teach it meets the needs of the twenty first century church. I am very excited about what they have done and know that you will be too when you read about it Click Here.
