A student’s experience at CDSP integrates scholarship, reflection, worship, spirituality, and the practice of ministry.
Women and men come to our historic Berkeley, California campus or attend classes online from urban and rural settings, small towns, and parishes of all sizes around the world. Their geographic and demographic diversity enriches an academic community that thrives in the unique ecumenical and inter-religious setting of the Graduate Theological Union.
Church Divinity School of the Pacific is a graduate theological seminary and center of theological study of the Episcopal Church, and is a founding member of the ecumenical Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California. Responding to the challenges of contemporary society with the good news of Jesus Christ, CDSP is rooted in our Anglican identity and tradition, and provides quality theological education that integrates scholarship, reflection, worship, spirituality, and the practice of ministry.
Church Divinity School of the Pacific engages in regular assessment to ensure that we are meeting our mission of equipping students to be effective lay and ordained leaders in the church and in the world. The most significant practice, in which we engage to monitor effectiveness, is an annual review of assignments, activities, and work completed by students in core classes in the Master of Divinity (MDiv) and Master of Theological Studies (MTS) curricula.
