Western Seminary Reviews

3 reviews
Western Seminary is a great place to earn a Masters Degree in Biblical and Theological Studies, Ministry, Divinity, or get your ThM. The professors are some of the best men I have learned from and are patient and understanding of your life situations. Challenging and fun are two words to describe Western.

Western has been a huge blessing in my life and to my educational/vocational goals.

I am about to complete my 3rd semester of studies, meaning one year of graduate school is almost in the books!

The professors are humble, incredibly gifted at what they do, and more than happy to interact with students.
Great professors, who excel in their fields, but also know how to communicate well. They know your name and give you their time. Beautiful campus. Online program is also excellent.
