Leaders in theological thought, JST faculty are well-published scholars with national and international reputations. With their students, they teach and learn how to do theology in today's multi-cultural world and Church, engaging a 21st-century approach to a 2000-year-old faith. Students have access to professors in all fields of theology and related disciplines, including ecumenical and interreligious dialogue, at JST as well as faculty of the Graduate Theological Union member schools, and Santa Clara University faculty.
Students at JST have access to some of the best libraries in the country, including the Flora Lamson Hewlett Library of the Graduate Theological Union, University of California - Berkeley Library, and Santa Clara University Library.
In a 21st century world of increasingly prominent comparative religions, growing religious fundamentalism and eroding traditional beliefs, JST prepares students to go to the frontiers of religion via academic course work and interreligious theological immersions. In-country immersions explore the world of Islam in Indonesia, Hinduism in India, and Tibetan Buddhism in Nepal.
Ecumenical and Interdisciplinary Dialogue
A member of the largest partnership of seminaries and graduate schools in the United States, the Jesuit School of Theology is situated at a distinctive crossroads. Collaboration with the schools and centers of the Graduate Theological Union means JST students receive an abundance of opportunities for ecumenical and interdisciplinary dialogue, in the classroom and beyond.
