We are a global community of students and faculty who weave cross-cultural experiences into the fabric of our mission to serve all of humanity.
At Central Seminary, we are a global community of students and faculty who weave cross-cultural experiences into the fabric of our mission to serve all of humanity. That is why students who live outside the United States can travel here to learn at our campus locations or participate in online education program options for those who prefer to remain in their home country. These global connections have a positive impact on students, faculty, and staff from theological institutions around the world, creating valuable experiences that educate and shape everyone involved.
Central Seminary offers several types of partnerships for churches and other faith organizations all over the world. We also have academic programs that benefit international students who live abroad, as well as Korean students who live in the United States. Through these partnerships, we work to address issues that transcend borders while fostering education, ministry training, and institutional improvement through these programs. We welcome the influence of our partner organizations to help improve our global awareness and intercultural competencies. Our global partnerships also fuel innovation and creativity through our shared experiences with diverse groups of individuals.
