School Details

Western Seminary is a private not-for-profit four-year Christian institution of higher education, with campuses in Oregon and California. Visions of the school initiated in 1925, with goals to provide a graduate-level theological institution located in the northwestern region of the United States. Then, in 1927, Western Baptist Theological Seminary officially opened. By the 1940s, the campus began to grow, building a physical campus in Portland, Oregon, and continued expanding throughout the twentieth century. Western Seminary added California campuses, and in 1981, Western Seminary introduced a Doctor of Ministry degree, in addition to a distance education program offered via video instruction. Through the years, the institution has continued to evolve, developing a biblical language dual-track learning environment, along with online learning, and non-credit educational experiences.

Today, Western Seminary continues to serve students as an evangelical, non-denominational, theological seminary, offering master’s degrees, doctoral programs, diplomas, and certificates. Non-credit classes are provided through the Center for Leadership Development. A number of online options give added flexibility. The Western Seminary online campus allows students to complete several degrees completely online.
