Houses of Study

Houses of Study at United equip students for service in the communities, movements and denominations where they serve. Houses support students in several ways: through academic tracks in United’s Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Christian Ministries and Master of Ministry degree programs; through mutual support in formation groups; and through mentorship from facilitators and spiritual directors in United’s Contextual Ministries program. Houses may also include related non-degree certificates and groups in United’s Doctor of Ministry program. Within a House of Study, you will find support from a House of Study director and fellowship among your peers. In most cases, the House of Study Director mentors the DMin focus group and may teach specialized elective courses in the Master’s tracks, enabling you to learn from an expert in the field.
