Men and women come to Western Seminary Sacramento campus to study theology, ministry practice, Bible, counseling, and coaching at a gospel-centered seminary. As a graduate school, Western offers students master's degrees as well as training programs for personal enrichment. 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.

Sacramento is a growing urban center in Northern California with a focus on technological, agricultural, and political progress, housing one of the most ethnically diverse populations in the nation.
