The United Theological College of the West Indies (UTCWI) is an ecumenical seminary training male and female clergy for Protestant denominations throughout the Caribbean.

The college was founded in 1965[1] and dedicated in 1966. It moved to its current, custom-built site adjacent to University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona campus in the early 1970s. The Roman Catholic St. Michael’s Theological College was built alongside at the same time.

It is affiliated to the University of the West Indies, forming the Department of Theology in the Faculty of Arts and Education (formerly Arts and General Studies).

It offers a Doctor of Ministry degree in co-operation with Columbia Theological Seminary in Georgia, United States.
