School of Theology

  • Academy

    Academy: Whether you’re an undergraduate or a seminary student, you’ll experience a rigorous yet supportive academic environment, learning from outstanding biblical and theological scholars who possess a deep Christian faith.

Are you looking for a community of scholars and friends who have a deep, abiding commitment to Christian faith that reaches around the world and is local at the same time? The School of Theology at Seattle Pacific University is that place. Through a unique model of scholarship, spiritual edification, and service we call “Academy, Abbey, Apostolate®” students are educated and equipped to engage the culture as thoughtful people.

Our Christian Theology Major lets you choose from four areas of concentration: Christian Mission, Christian Scripture, Educational Ministry, and Theological Studies. We also offer seven minors. Students of all majors take our three University Foundations courses.

2016 Palmer Lecture

From the dawn of Christianity, some form of art has often communicated that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. Art continues to not only represent but also shape our understanding of community, revelation, spirituality, conversion, and worship. This dialogical relationship between art and theology points the way to an integration of spirituality, art, and liturgy, a synthesis we see in sacred images.

Explore this intersection with Fr. Eduardo Fernández at the free 39th annual Alfred S. Palmer Lecture, hosted by Seattle Pacific University's School of Theology and Seattle Pacific Seminary. Dr. Laura Lasworth, SPU art professor, will be the respondent.
