The Cooperative College Program of United Theological Seminary is designed to coordinate the education of students in selected undergraduate schools with the graduate program in divinity offered at United. The program provides a unique combination of liberal and professional education well suited for those desiring to enter the field of ministry. Participating students are accepted into the Master of Divinity (M.Div.) program. Although able to accommodate a range of undergraduate backgrounds, majors in religion, Christian ministry, or a related major, are best suited to the program.
Students with sufficient preparation may enter United Theological Seminary after three years of undergraduate study or upon completion of the baccalaureate. Although some students may prefer to complete the baccalaureate degree before undertaking graduate study at United, with appropriate guidance highly qualified students can reach a satisfactory level of preparation for graduate work at United in three years of coordinated undergraduate study. After four semesters at United, in which at least 60 semester credit hours are earned, these students may qualify for the Master of Divinity degree.
