Academics

Western Reformed Seminary offers eight different degrees. A Bachelor of Arts degree or its academic equivalent is required to receive a Masters degree in any of the six Masters programs; an Associate of Arts degree or its academic equivalent is required to receive the B.D. or B.R.E. degrees. In addition to the eight degrees offered, WRS makes it possible to work on those degrees via distance learning through our Pastoral Mentorship Program (PMP).

Western Reformed Seminary is privileged to teach a wide range of departmental studies, from Old & New Testament to Nouthetic Counseling & Pastoral Studies. The links below will take you to these departments, as well as give a description of each of the classes that are part of the degrees at WRS.

The Pastoral Mentorship Program (PMP) is a combination of distance learning and concentrated classroom training. It is designed for Bible Presbyterians and Christian servants from similar Reformed churches who are busy serving in their home churches and find it difficult to move to Tacoma for full-time studies. All degree programs offered by WRS are available through the PMP, except the M.R.S. degree. View more PMP info »
