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, and ApostolateTM” students are educated and equipped to engage the culture as thoughtful people.

Seattle Pacific Seminary Programs

We offer two master’s programs — the Master of Arts in Theology (MA) and the Master of Divinity (MDiv) — in an environment where you can flourish.

Undergraduate Programs

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.
