A degree in Christian Theology at Seattle Pacific University prepares you to live your life with depth and conviction in whatever field you choose. That might mean serving in an overseas relief agency, or for a nonprofit organization. It might mean working in the business sector, health care, education, or other professional area. Or it might mean going on to pursue graduate study in Theology in order to serve God in the church or the academy.


Regardless of your path, the faculty of the School of Theology knows that what you believe is only one aspect of Christian faith. It also matters how you live out that faith. With our distinctive understanding of theological education (Academy, Abbey, and Apostolate), a degree in Christian Theology from SPU will help you learn to understand your faith so that, in partnership with the Holy Spirit, you might translate it into a way of life that engages the culture and changes the world. 

The major program of study in Christian Theology consists of a set of core courses that reflect the full-range of theological studies (Christian vocation, ministry and mission, scripture, heritage, and doctrine). From there, theology majors are invited to choose one of four areas of concentration: 

  • Christian Mission
  • Christian Scripture
  • Educational Ministry
  • Theological Studies 

Application to this program may be made through the Theology Major or Minor Application form (PDF). A student must complete the major or minor requirements in effect when the student is admitted to the major or minor.
