Princeton Seminary is a Presbyterian school in the Reformed tradition, an identity we embrace proudly and believe to be an essential source of wisdom and strength for our mission. At the same time, Princeton Seminary is an ecumenical, international, and intercultural community that holds Jesus Christ as the center of our life together.
True to its Reformed heritage, Princeton Seminary promotes academic excellence as a faithful expression of loving God. This community of learning nurtures intellectual curiosity and fosters theological research.
A vital part of the learning experience at Princeton Seminary is our residential community. But learning isn’t only confined to our Princeton campus. The world itself is our classroom, and students extend their learning in many locations throughout the globe with field education experiences, travel courses, and academic exchange programs.
The essence of the Reformed tradition is an impulse towards innovation: “the church once reformed always being reformed in accordance with the word of God.” The Seminary is strengthening its core commitment to preparing pastors for parish ministry while providing room in the curriculum for new forms of Christian ministry and service to which our students feel called.
“The rooting of justice in our spiritual formation in Christ requires careful thought and teaching. I was equipped to lead in this way through my time at PTS.”
