Seminaries: The Ultimate List

Seminaries Header Image

Introducing the ultimate list of Seminaries! With more than 200 Seminaries to choose from, it isn’t easy to sift through all the details and determine what is the best seminary for you. To make it easier, we have gone ahead and gathered a list to help you narrow down the options by denomination, location, and tuition cost.

The Ultimate Seminaries List

The location of the seminary probably holds the least amount of weight when it comes to selecting the one that’s right for you. Then again, some may want to stay local or close to home. Either way, this is an easy way to list the seminaries that are in your state and begin your search from there.

The strongest deciding factor for most people is the tuition cost. For that reason, we have gathered information on the average cost per credit hour, based on the offering of a Master of Divinity program or a similar program offered by the particular seminary. If no cost per credit hour was found on the Seminary website, the cost was defined using the form of measurement provided.

YR = per year or annually
S = per semester
C = per course
U = per unit

When deciding on a seminary to attend, be thorough in your research and decision making. Do your research and find out all you can about the institution that you’re paying for. Your education is valuable to us and we want to provide you with the resources to make these decisions.
