School of Theology

  • Ecotheology Hero
    The Ecotheology minor allows you to pursue a scientifically and theologically informed understanding of creation care as you anticipate and shape the future and experience God’s creation through the lens of 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.

The School of Theology offers a Christian Theology Major and seven minors. Students of all majors take our three University Foundations courses.
