The Graduate School of Theology (GST) prepares students for deep theological engagement, transformational impact, and active leadership in communities and public life.
Created in 2019, the GST is the result of a merger between San Francisco Theological Seminary (SFTS) and the University of Redlands. Building on these institutions' combined 250+ years of history, the GST is committed to educating students, advancing scholarship, and celebrating service.
