Hispanic House of Study


The Hispanic House of Study at United equips students to serve in their communities, movements, and denominations through master’s and non-degree tracks, training groups, and mentoring by facilitators and spiritual directors in the Contextual Ministry program.

Most courses are offered fully online. Each degree program includes academic study in the following areas:

  • Bible
  • History and Theology
  • Practical Theology
  • Contextual Ministry*

*Contextual Ministry courses include a three-day face-to-face retreat during the Summer term of the first and second years.

United’s MDiv meets the requirements for ordination in most major Protestant denominations, though many graduates serve as lay professionals in a variety of fields, including chaplaincy, nonprofit leadership, teaching and social work.

Admissions Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s Degree
  • GPA

Non-Degree Certificates

Non-degree certificates are available to domestic and international students. The fully online format fits your busy schedule and allows you to complete your coursework from wherever you live.

The establishment and maintenance of Houses of Study at United Theological Seminary are dependent on sufficient enrollment.
