The Seattle School is an evangelical and progressive institution. The faculty consciously submits to the authority of Scripture and the model of a hermeneutical framework that interprets the Bible in light of its grammatical, historical, literary, and theological contexts. Relational hermeneutics is a full-bodied, soul-engaged, heart-transforming encounter that involves the subjective worldview of the interpreter as much as the process of interpretation.

The mission of The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology is to train people to be competent in the study of text, soul, and culture in order to serve God and neighbor through transforming relationships.

The Seattle School prepares people, who in obedience to Christ serve in pastoral ministries, counseling, the arts, spiritual direction and other various professions.

  1. Though small, this seminary packs a punch and continues to have both international and grassroots impact in the fields of Theology and Psychology. They truly emphasize transformation, as their mission states. The program is intense and extremely personally rewarding, regardless of degree. The community is diverse of opinion and willing to dialogue. From Students, to Faculty and Staff, this seminary is innovative and courageous. Check out the website, you won’t be disappointed.

  2. If you are an artist and are at all interested in psychology, theology, or spirituality–come to this school. The Seattle School has been an absolutely amazing place to grow into my creativity. The school really embraces and encourages so many different mediums for learning. Papers are obviously first choice, or most common, but there are so many opportunities to integrate what we are learning with music, painting, performance and so many other things. It has been a beautiful experience for me to be able to integrate art and creativity so much into what I am studying in grad school, and just as beneficial to watch other people’s unique talents and voices come into my learning experience.

  3. Attending The Seattle School has been an absolutely life-changing experience for me. I have had the opportunity to both study within the theology program and the psychology program and both are excellent. The openness of the school and the diversity of faculty creates a beautiful space for learning different perspectives and being prepared to engage realms of spirituality, culture and psychology.

  4. The Seattle School is an amazing school! My experience at this school has been transformative for me in every way. I recommend this school for anyone that is longing for a place to dig deep within your own heart and reach wide toward others. Preparing to touch others in ministry or counseling while discovering God in our midst. I love the professors. They are living out their own journeys – living out what they teach, offering sincere care for the students. I moved all the way from the east coast to attend and it has been worth every step of blood, sweat, and tears. There’s no place like The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology.

  5. This school is the best, ever.

  6. Non-denominational graduate-only school for theology (4-yr MDiv), counseling psychology (3-yr MACP) and Christian studies (2-yr MACS). Integrated program throughout all three disciplines, including Practicum and Internship requirements. Faculty all practice within their discipline outside of teaching and the program’s reputation among their peers demonstrates relationally-mature graduates. Not for everyone, as the program is intense, but most of that work encourages honest self- and peer-reflection throughout.
