Western Seminary is a Christian graduate school, made up of students who are diverse in vocational aims, age and ethnicity—but united in great love for Jesus and his gospel.

Western Seminary Online campus extends our trademark gospel-centered teaching around the globe in disciplines such as theology, divinity, ministry, and counseling. We're helping Christian men and women who want to study where they live make the most of the learning laboratory where God has placed them. Of course, our campus-based students can also tap into online courses for additional scheduling flexibility.

In 1981, Western pioneered seminary distance learning with a commitment to use emerging technology to make robustly biblical seminary training accessible. What started with VHS tapes (remember those?) has given way to our Integr@te learning system. It brings our classrooms to your web-connected device, dynamically linking you to a community of instructors and other students who want to bring renewal to our world. Each course offers video lectures featuring our own faculty of ministry practitioners, as well as presentation materials, notes and other resources to aid your learning. And every Online campus multimedia course is yours to keep, bringing our internationally-respected faculty into your ministry study whenever you need them.
