Hello and welcome!

Unity Institute and Seminary is proud to serve the world by inspiring its graduates to lead from spiritual principle and inspire transformation in others. Our programs honor the universal truths in all religions and respect each individual’s right to choose a spiritual path.

As a premier graduate institution, the Institute offers either a Master of Divinity or a Diploma in Unity Ministry for those seeking ordination, as well as continuing education classes for the general public. Whether seeking classes on campus or online, we are pleased to bring you courses with a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity.

Offering the flexibility of attending part or full-time, with a combination of online and on-campus classes, a program at Unity Institute and Seminary is more than a degree in theology … it is preparation to become a transformative spiritual leader in ministry, business, education, or any other arena. 

Housed in a building on the National Register of Historic Places and located in the beautiful 1,200-acre township of Unity Village, Unity Institute and Seminary offers a beautiful park-like setting. The Mediterranean-style campus includes scenic countryside with two lakes, an All-America Rose Selections© accredited garden, fountains, a bookstore and coffee shop, and the Unity Village Chapel. In addition, our extensive metaphysical library and archives serve as the only primary-source collection of historical materials relating to the Unity movement and offer more than 50,000 catalogued items, including a collection of rare early New Thought materials. Located just 15 miles from downtown Kansas City, Missouri, the area is also alive with many venues for arts, entertainment, and dining.

Take some time to browse through these pages and then schedule a personal visit to discover the beauty and peacefulness that is Unity Village. We look forward to helping you discover your potential as one of tomorrow’s innovative spiritual leaders.
