DAYTON, Ohio (UTS) – Beginning in the fall of 2010, United Theological Seminary in Dayton, Ohio, is offering a new online Master of Divinity degree that can be completed in three years. The program offers the same quality of education as a traditional degree with the added flexibility of attending class from any location with internet access.

To earn the degree students must complete a minimum of 30 percent of the degree in a hybrid (partially online and partially face-to-face) or face-to-face format. For ordination requirements, students should check with their own judicatories.

United’s new program is designed to include “Gathering Weeks” so that students need only spend one week per semester on campus. For more details about the program, including a course schedule, please visit United’s Web site at www.united.edu and click “3 Yr Online MDiv.”

United also offers many online courses for those who just need a course or two for ordination or who may have an interest in a theological topic. For a list of courses please contact United’s Admissions at 800-322-5817.
