The Master of Arts in Reconciliation and Intercultural Studies (MA-RIS) is one of four master of arts degrees that Seattle Pacific Seminary offers. SPS also offers a master of divinity (MDiv) degree and a Graduate Certificate in Christian Studies.
The MDiv degree at Seattle Pacific Seminary is built on the classical theological disciplines of Scripture, church history, and theology, and prepares you for ordained ministry, other pastoral leadership, or admission to doctoral programs in theology.
Seattle Pacific Seminary offers the richness of a seminary within a comprehensive Christian university — including four dual-degree programs in partnership with the Schools of Business and Economics, and Psychology, Family, and Community.
Are you interested in being part of a thriving seminary community in a rich, urban setting? Do you want your graduate studies to affect not just your mind, but also your heart? Join us in a fellowship of learning, discipleship, worship, and mission, where you and your study of theology can flourish. With a unique model of theological education we call “Academy, Abbey, Apostolate®,” Seattle Pacific Seminary will equip you for ministry in the 21st century.
As a Seminary student, you can choose from six Master of Arts (MA) degrees, a Master of Divinity (MDiv), and four Dual Degrees (MBA, MST) — as well as a Graduate Certificate in Christian Studies — all of which support SPU’s vision to engage the culture and change the world with the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ.

The annual SPU Paul T. Walls lecture was held in First Free Methodist Church on May 6, 2015, with Dr. Doug Koskela as the keynote speaker. His talk entitled, “I Knew When Written on My Heart: Experience and the Knowledge of God,” Dr. Koskela asks the question whether an experience of the heart enables us to know God? How can we relate the intellectual claims of the Christian faith to the dynamics we experience on the way of salvation? To read more about Dr. Koskela’s lecture, this is a synopsis by Megan Wildhood.
"Tom Krueger was standing at the church lectern, wearing golfing duds and carrying a nine-iron. He looked, and apparently felt, a bit sheepish. But, as usual, he had a mischievous twinkle in his eye too. 'I’m dressed today,' he said, 'the way I usually dress on Sunday mornings. You’re probably wondering why I, of all people, should be standing here on Stewardship Sunday, encouraging you folks to increase your commitment of ‘time, talents and treasures’ to this church, when my own commitment isn’t what it should be. I’m wondering that, too.' We all knew Tom, and we all howled with laughter. But the pledges that came in on that autumn day in 1983 more than covered the budget for 1984."
