United Lutheran Seminary (ULS) was formed in 2017, when the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia joined as one. With two physical campuses and a robust Distributed Learning cohort, ULS builds and sustains an affirming and diverse learning community of faithful, well-educated leaders skilled at guiding grace-filled encounters.

ULS sets the standard in developing well prepared Christ-centered leaders, formed by Lutheran and ecumenical theological commitments. ULS graduates are trained to engage the contexts in which they serve by living into the Gospel and guided by the Holy Spirit. They practice grace, demonstrate love, and enable others to live the love of Jesus.

ULS currently offers 6 degree and 4 certificate programs, in addition to audit and non-degree opportunities. Our Kindling Faith initiative connects alumni, congregational members and friends of the seminary with enrichment events, conferences, presentations and seminars. Our calendar of events features those offered through the Urban Theological Institute, Worship Life, book clubs led by President Erwin, fall and spring convocations, student-organized events, and many more.
