Welcome to the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary's Christian Leadership Program. UDTS educates, equips, and empowers you through online studies.

We serve multiple denominations and faith traditions. Whether you serve as a church officer, a Christian Education leader or teacher, want training to become a lay pastor, or simply to deepen your understanding of the Christian faith, you will discover a quality program.

You will experience a fulfilling education in an online community. This program gives you flexibility within the courses to fit even the busiest schedules, as all courses are taught online and are asynchronous. UDTS values community in distance education. You'll discover others in class discussions with similar passions for God's kingdom.

With over 20 years of experience in distance education, having educated several thousand students, UDTS has moved this experience from the frontier to the mainstream. Join us online for a journey deeper into God's word and the wisdom and practices of the church.

The University of Dubuque Theological Seminary is not a certification agency for ministry. As with ordained ministry, lay ministry is certified through the individual's denominational judicatory (Presbytery, Church and Ministry Committee, or Local Church, depending on denominational background). UDTS does, however, certify the completion of courses.
