I came across the ULC Seminary by accident on the Internet and have been most impressed by it. Clearly, if one is seeking qualifications to assist one in gaining employment or preferment, then it is not the route to follow ( and, surely, there are few people who are likely to fail to appreciate this), but as a community of seekers after knowledge it does deliver the goods and provides a wide range of good value courses at very low cost. If desired, one need not part with any money as the website provides many resources gratis in addition to the opportunity for ordination which the ULC has offered for nearly 50 years, incidentally long before the advent of the Internet which now, of course, plays a part in ULC operations as it does with any other world-wide institution. Ordination, however, is not dependent on the Internet but is actually verified and recorded at the ULC's physical HQ. There is always a caveat emptor element in these matters but I feel that the ULC deserves a rather more considered review than the two words 'Degree Mill' followed by a string of exclamation marks which says rather more about the reviewer than the ULC Seminary, perhaps.

The Universal Life Church Seminary is a solid avenue for students seeking religious education without the paradigm of denominational doctrine coloring the lessons.

Master of Ministry

I'm in the seminary program and started the Master of Ministry with hopes of earning my Doctorate down the road. I started with the course Spirit Quest the suggested required one they offer that takes around eight months. Both were inexpensive the program is generally run not to make a huge profit with the instructors getting an honorarium of sorts so is not like most other seminaries. So a course will run somewhere between $60-80 each and are 3-5 credits. A Masters takes 40 credits and the Doctor of Ministry 60 credits. So you are looking at around 15 courses for the doctorate. But where else can you take courses in Wicca, Druidism and many interesting spiritual paths including Christianity. Now the program is done mainly by e-mail and the message boards of the seminary provide an outlet for class debates and talk about religious matters. But is fairly low tech that is not that bad but is not on-par with established seminary programs. But good enough for the exceptional value. They DO NOT take transfer or life experience credit but the program is meant to be a serious program if unorthodox. A final essay for each course is required and there is no large research paper required for either degree. But its not an academic program so much as a spiritual one to train ministers for many paths of spiritual growth and service. But if you want a good Ministry degree that is eclectic, inexpensive and completely above board this is far from a bad option.
