Welcome to Universal Seminary

Our goal and purpose is to help you find and follow your own spiritual path and follow that spiritual path wherever and however you want to take it. Our secondary goal and purpose is to help you earn an academic degree in comparative religions, divinity, ministry, religious studies or theology. Our third goal and purpose is to help prepare you for your ministry as a deacon, deaconess, druid, priest, priestess, minister, pastor or swami.
You're welcome to take any of our workshops, seminars or courses at any time. We'll assign an instructor to assist you in planning your own course of study to attain your goals the way you want to attain them. Together we'll tailor your course of study to fit our degree programs and attain your goals.
