About Us

Pacific School of Religion is committed to serving God by equipping historic and emerging faith communities for ministries of compassion and justice in a changing world. We affirm our historic mission to educate men and women for ministry and other forms of religious leadership and to be a center and resource for Christian thought in an interfaith and pluralistic context. We affirm our ecumenical and Christian heritage and commitment as an open and affirming community that honors diversity and presses toward racial, gender, sexual orientation, and economic justice.

PSR's commitments find expression in innovative programs of scholarship and education for clergy and laity. Strong faith communities require an integration of faith and reason, theory and practice, piety and critical intellect, tradition and creativity. We seek to embody these values and disciplines in our programs and our common life.

PSR's location in a dynamic metropolitan area in the western United States, on the edge of the Pacific Basin, and adjacent to the University of California at Berkeley campus, is a special resource and responsibility. In partnership with our supporting denominations and local faith communities, we place high value on the search for truth, clarity of theological insight, artistry in the presentation of the Gospel and creation of community, strong reliance on faith in divine activity within and among us, and honesty, mutual respect, and integrity in our pastoral, educational, and administrative work.

PSR is a member of the Graduate Theological Union (GTU), an ecumenical and interfaith consortium of seminaries, centers and institutes. PSR provides an education that is intellectually challenging, culturally pluralistic, and morally and spiritually enriching. It is a distinctive community, marked by the diversity of its students, faculty, staff, administration and partners. Close to 150 students are active in the school’s graduate and leadership programs, representing a broad range of cultural and ethnic heritages, spiritual backgrounds, genders and sexual orientations, hailing from all over the US and abroad. In addition to accredited degree programs, PSR offers leadership programs and flexible learning opportunities to students, community members, and organizations. More than 2,800 alumni are leaders in religious communities and social change agencies in the US and around the world.
