School of Theology and Ministry

School of Theology and Ministry

  • Seattle University School of Theology and Ministry students come from almost every decade of life experience and from a gamut of religious backgrounds and faith perspectives. We believe that the best kind of learning comes from great conversations; that different points of view colliding and intermingling make learning richer and deeper.
