You’re a creative, fearless, spiritually-rooted thinker who wants to build a better world.

We’re a radically progressive seminary that can give you the tools and experience to do it.

Pacific School of Religion is a community of loving and curious people who connect theological study with spiritual formation and innovative leadership training. Our faculty and student body work together to create an educational experience focused on justice and equality, for ourselves and the world.

Located in the historically and culturally vibrant San Francisco Bay Area, we’re home to two groundbreaking centers for social transformation—Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies in Religion and Ignite Institute @ PSR. We are also part of the Graduate Theological Union, a consortium of interreligious grad schools with the largest theological faculty in the U.S.

Come & See! Prospective and New Student Event is on November 6-7. Check it out!

Join us November 6-7 for Come & See! Prospective and Admitted Student Event. Come & See! is designed for those pursuing a call to ministry or considering seminary (graduate theological education) as preparation for social change work as a pastor, justice leader, chaplain, religious educator, scholar, administrator, or other faith community professional.
