Day, Evening & Weekend Courses
PSR and the other schools of the GTU offer several courses in the evenings or on weekends, in addition to daytime courses, allowing people to take classes while working or serving in congregations. Designed for seminarians and other Master’s-level students, these courses are also appropriate for those seeking continuing education.
January & Summer Sessions
In January, one- to three-week Intersession classes are designed for seminary students as well as those currently working in ministry.
Summer session classes attract people engaged in ministries of all types: pastors, religious educators, pastoral counselors, social ministries staff, lay people, artists, and seminary students.
Alumni/ae Coursework Opportunities
Graduated from PSR and eager to learn more? Alumni/ae are welcome to return and take courses at a discounted rate.
Field Education Mentors
Field Education Mentors may register for courses at a reduced rate during the semesters they are mentoring for PSR students.
Lectures, conferences, workshops and other events are hosted by PSR throughout the year. Check the PSR calendar (scroll down on the PSR homepage) for event listings. Many events award CEUs. Consult the event literature or contact the organizer for details.
Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
PSR offers CEUs to participants in many of its programs, including Theological Education for Leadership (TEL), Summer Session and January Intersession, as well as to participants in various special opportunities. In addition, graduate level courses may be taken for CEUs, with faculty permission.
One CEU at PSR represents ten (10) contact hours between student and teacher/event.
California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS)
PSR CE offerings meet the qualifications for continuing education credit for MFTs, LPCCs, LEPs and/or LCSWs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. Accredited schools (such as PSR) are authorized by BBS to provide continuing education and are not required to have a continuing education provider number. (See Statutes and Regulations Relating to the Practice of: Professional Clinical Counseling; Marriage and Family Therapy; Educational Psychology; Clinical Social Work, Section 1887.6)
Proof of Participation
Pacific School of Religion’s Department of Community and Continuing Education (CCE) assumes administrative responsibility for approval and record-keeping of CEUs. As part of this record-keeping, PSR provides participants with proof that they have received CEUs for appropriate educational activities in the form of a certificate of completion.
Students needing further verification may request a transcript through PSR’s transcript request process.
