In 2017, exactly five hundred years after the Protestant Reformation, the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia joined their two historic institutions as United Lutheran Seminary (ULS).
As a premier graduate professional school, United Lutheran Seminary offers theological education and leadership formation that is both academically rigorous and practically oriented. Students engage in the study of scripture and biblical languages, church history, theology and philosophy as well as practical disciplines such as preaching and pastoral care. Graduates are equipped to move in many directions as leaders in church and society, including parish ministry, chaplaincies, and as leaders in arenas of human service and justice, or after additional study, as scholars and professors.
Whether your interest is the Bible, stewardship & ecology, urban ministry, politics, food (or the politics of food), the pastoral arts of ministry, public leadership, social justice, worship, faith & science, ecumenism or the study of Lutheranism; United Lutheran Seminary offers a theological education that will prepare you to serve the needs of the world today wherever your passions may lie.
United Lutheran Seminary is the newest graduate and professional school in theological education with the deepest roots.
A seminary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), United Lutheran Seminary is a single school with two campuses, consolidating two historic, Pennsylvania seminaries from Gettysburg and Philadelphia.Learn More
