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 LGBTQ 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 and See, our Prospective and New Student Event, is March 2-3, 2018. Check it out!

Join us March 2-3 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.

Contact us or fill out our Visit Planner if another date works better for your campus visit.

Admissions staff and PSR representatives can be found around the country at recruiting events and national conferences. We are always adding new events, so check back again often, as we update our plans. If you don’t see an event you think we should attend, contact us at!
