RevAnnJefferson HeadshotWelcome to Pacific School of Religion! Our international students make up almost one-fifth of PSR’s dynamic student body. On campus and in the San Francisco Bay Area, you’ll have the chance to meet people from all over the world.

We know that coming to study in a new cultural and social context, often in a second language, requires courage. PSR is committed to providing academic and personal support to aid you in this effort. For example, an orientation session is designed specifically for international students, and weekly academic support and workshops are offered throughout the year. A PALS program matches entering international students with a U.S. student for conversation. The International Student Support Task Group — composed of PSR administration, faculty, staff, and students — provides ongoing planning and oversight of PSR’s programs for international students.

The Office of Community Life has an awareness of what it is like to live and work internationally. Whenever you need help with academic work, some insight on the confusion of U.S. culture, assistance in dealing with classroom expectations, time to talk about your future plans or life in the U.S., please come by. We are here to support you.
