School Overview

Originally founded in 1889 as a seminary of the University of Denver, Iliff School of Theology officially opened in 1892 near the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Denver, Colorado. In 1910 Iliff School of Theology incorporated as a school of theology and Methodist seminary, independent from the University of Denver. Today the Iliff School of Theology is a private, nonprofit, four-year graduate school affiliated with the United Methodist Church whose mission is “the education of persons for effective ministry in Christian churches and other religious communities, for academic leadership, and for the cultivation of justice and peace in local and global contexts. In a world fragmented by religious and ideological conflicts, Iliff promotes theological scholarship and dialogue to foster transformative possibilities for humanity and nature.”

Iliff offers master's degrees and PhDs, as well as graduate certificates for graduate students who do not wish to participate in a full degree program. Onsite, online, and hybrid courses are available to Iliff School of Theology students. Online courses will have assignment due dates, projects, papers, tests, and quizzes.
