As an Episcopal seminary, Berkeley Divinity School offers what we like to call “the best of both worlds” in theological education: the diversity of a university divinity school, combined with the focus of a denominational seminary. This potent combination offers a rare opportunity for Episcopal seminarians by providing an educational setting where they have access both to the vast educational resources of a secular university, as well as to the intensive formation for ministry of a Christian seminary.

Berkeley’s goal is to create an inquisitive environment where students acquire a clear understanding of the complexity of issues facing the church in the world, so that they may in turn become persuasive, imaginative advocates for the Gospel of Jesus Christ as clergy and lay leaders of the Episcopal Church. Within Yale Divinity School, Berkeley students are challenged on a daily basis by a lively ecumenical academic life as they engage faculty and colleagues from every variety of the Christian tradition, as well as a focused routine of prayer, worship and hands-on practical pastoral experience. This immersion encourages students to become more firmly grounded in their own Anglican heritage, and at the same time ready to discover fresh conclusions and insights that are both intellectually powerful and theologically genuine. We at Berkeley believe that this method of priestly and lay formation is critical to the future of the church, and we look forward to your participation and presence.
