Entrance Requirements

Entrance to Starr King's Master of Divinity, Master of Religious Leadership for Social Change (MASC), and Master of Arts programs normally requires a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university, or an equivalent degree from a non-U.S. school.

Our application asks you to reflect on your --

  • sense of calling to Unitarian Universalist ministry or religious leadership,
  • experience in congregational life,
  • religious practice and commitments,
  • interest in scholarly study,
  • engagement in cross-cultural and social justice work,
  • formative relationships and life story.

If you're considering an application, we invite you to visit the school to meet faculty and students, and sit in on classes. Contact our Director of Recruitment (email) to arrange a visit.
