Union University California

Introduction

Union University of California is an online theological university intent on reaching the world’s underserved church leaders to provide them with the opportunity to study practical, holistic theological and church leadership training degree programs by removing for our students the barriers of poverty, second language proficiency, and the inability to relocate for onsite study.

UUC welcomes students from all denominations and Christian faith traditions, and recruits faculty to represent the wide variety of denominations and faith traditions within the Christian Church. UUC seeks to ground our theological training within the context, insights, and theological developments of the church in the regions where our students live and minister. Union University of California (UUC) was established in the State of California in 1986 as a non-profit, religious corporation, approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education of the State of California to grant academic degrees, whereby "approved" means compliance with state standards as set forth in the Education Code.

Currently, UUC is an affiliate member of the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE), the United States Distance Learning Association as well as the California Association of Private Post-secondary Schools.
