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.
Seattle Pacific Seminary’s vision for educating students is defined by a threefold model that we call “Academy, Abbey, and Apostolate®.” Throughout your education, you will be challenged to study theology in a rigorous, yet holistic manner that is equally focused on your spiritual formation, and your vocational preparedness.

Lorna Gaffney, a student in SPU’s Christian Social Entrepreneurship program and a volunteer at Eden’s Glory Safe House in Greenville, Illinois, along with Co-Founders Ginger Coakley and Annie Schomaker, share the story of manufacturing space renovation. All agree that the CSE program at SPU gave Gaffney the ideas, feedback, and skills to grow their social enterprise to “bring more people to freedom.”
