Washington Theological Seminary exists to develop for the Christian church and its related ministries qualified leaders who possess a foundational knowledge of the Scriptures and a biblical world and life view.
Its programs emphasize biblical studies complemented by general and professional education and field experience. Its educational climate fosters the development of intellectual and spiritual maturity, leadership potential, and a sense of world mission.
Student fieldwork is an integral part of the learning experience. Each student is expected to engage regularly in some from Christian work under the direction of the Department of Practical Theology.
