Welcome to Starr King

Starr King School for the Ministry is a graduate theological school and seminary in Oakland, California. Our roots are deep in the fertile soil of Unitarian Universalism, and our branches embrace the multi-religious life and learning that will matter most in this new century. We hold fast to a vision that theological education must focus on the development of the whole person and the calling forth of each person's gifts.
