The Master of Arts in Reconciliation and Intercultural Studies (MA-RIS) is one of four master of arts degrees that Seattle Pacific Seminary offers. SPS also offers a master of divinity (MDiv) degree and a Graduate Certificate in Christian Studies.
The MDiv degree at Seattle Pacific Seminary is built on the classical theological disciplines of Scripture, church history, and theology, and prepares you for ordained ministry, other pastoral leadership, or admission to doctoral programs in theology.
Seattle Pacific Seminary offers the richness of a seminary within a comprehensive Christian university — including four dual-degree programs in partnership with the Schools of Business and Economics, and Psychology, Family, and Community.
Are you interested in being part of a thriving seminary community in a rich, urban setting? Do you want your graduate studies to affect not just your mind, but also your heart? Join us in a fellowship of learning, discipleship, worship, and mission, where you and your study of theology can flourish. With a unique model of theological education we call “Academy, Abbey, Apostolate®,” Seattle Pacific Seminary will equip you for ministry in the 21st century.
As a Seminary student, you can choose from four Master of Arts (MA) degrees, a Master of Divinity (MDiv), and four Dual Degrees (MBA, MST) — as well as a Graduate Certificate in Christian Studies — all of which support SPU’s vision to engage the culture and change the world with the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ.

"Readers of this blog may recall that last week’s post contained a letter from a former student of mine, plus the first half of my reply. The present post contains the conclusion of my letter. As explained in my introduction to last week’s post, my reply to the student was crafted as a 'homiletical open letter,' which I read during a Sunday worship service at the Lake Washington United Methodist Church – hence the reference below to 'the sermonic part of this long letter.'"
The 50th Annual Meeting of the Wesleyan Theological Society is scheduled for next week in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. SPS' own Dr. Doug Strong will be one of the featured plenary speakers.
Also, we would like to announce that SPU's Dr. Priscilla Pope-Levison will be honored as the 2015 recipient of the Smith Wynkoop Book Award for Building the Old Time Religion: Women Evangelists in the Progressive Era. She will be presented with the award at the Friday evening banquet. This is a tremendous and well-deserved honor, and we celebrate it with her. Congratulations, Dr. Pope-Levison!
"Some time ago, I got a handwritten letter from a former student. It arrived several days before I was due to preach at the Lake Washington United Methodist Church, in Kirkland, WA, and I decided to craft my response as a kind of homiletical open letter, which I both mailed to him and delivered from the pulpit. I’m not sure how much my young friend benefited from my reply, but a number of persons who “overheard” it in church found it useful and asked for copies. I am thus venturing to publish this exchange of letters in this blog."
Paul’s Epistle to the Romans has long spoken with an influential voice in the church. Exploring themes such as justification, sanctification, election, and the role of the Spirit in the life of faith, these 16 chapters have helped shape the beliefs of generations. Spend an evening exploring this important text with SPU Associate Professor of Dogmatic and Constructive Theology Daniel Castelo.
A written collaboration by the Seattle Pacific Seminary (SPS) faculty, this is a compact introduction to the Bible. This video features SPS professors and authors Dr. David Nienhuis and Dr. Rob Wall, who provide some background on their new book and what they hope readers will get out of it.
