Flexible Learning at PSR

"Boldness Begins at Home"

Pacific School of Religion is located in the beautiful hills of Berkeley. And in your beautiful living room at home. Flexible Learning includes online, hybrid, blended, intensive, and evening/weekend courses that allow you to study with renowned PSR faculty and fellow students without leaving home, job, or family.

These options are ideal for but not limited to distance students, who live outside commuting range from the campus in Berkeley. Online courses are taught with simple, robust technology. Hybrid courses combine on-campus and online learning. Intensive courses are conducted on campus in one-, two-, or three-week sessions. And Evening/Weekend courses invite students to learn on campus outside of office hours. Seekers, seminarians, clergy and scholars from Berkeley and around the world can easily join together in dialogue around critical theological texts and issues in progressive Christianity.
