Say Western Meets or Beat Expectations
Western Seminary is an evangelical graduate school, made up of students who are diverse in both ethnicity and ministry aims -- but united in great love for Jesus and his gospel.
Men and women come to Western Seminary Sacramento campus to study theology, divinity, counseling, and coaching at a biblical and gospel-centered seminary. As a graduate school, Western offers them master's degrees and training programs at the master's level. Most students will complete their theological studies in the midst of ministry work and careers, thanks to our focus on convenient class scheduling options for on-campus courses and a robust catalog of online courses through Western Seminary Online campus. And small class sizes ensure that students enjoy personal attention from experienced professors who care deeply for their spiritual formation and ministry impact.
Western Seminary Sacramento campus is located in the capital city of California, nested in the San Joaquin Valley. Sacramento is a growing urban center in Northern California with a focus for technological, agricultural, and political progress, housing one of the most ethnically diverse populations in the nation.
This Sacramento campus was founded in 1991 on the campus of Arcade Church. It is located just four miles south of Interstate 80, and eight miles northeast of Downtown Sacramento. The campus relocateed to larger, upgraded facilities in the nearby Rocklin area in 2014.

Sacramento Campus Facilities
The Sacramento Campus is well-equipped for an excellent learning experience. Housed on a large church campus, it offers three classrooms, staff and faculty offices, a student lounge, as well as the largest theological library in the Northern California region.
In 2014 Western Seminary formed the Corban University/Western Seminary Library System with a highly regarded regional university headquartered in Salem, Oregon. The joint online library collection dramatically exceeds the previous holdings of either institution. Dr. Robert Krupp has become the Director of Libraries at both institutions. In addition to the print resources of the seminary and its consortia partners, faculty and students have access to a growing collection of 150,000 e-books and the full text of 15,000 journals.
Where Our Students live
This and all other Western Seminary campuses are non-residential, as we serve part-time and full-time students who wish to engage in seminary training without relocating. Students at the Sacramento campus may live near campus, but others come from homes and ministry contexts in the San Joaquin Valley and beyond -- as you can see in the map below.
