By July 2027, Starr King’s degree programs will be well-known and nationally recognized for how we help our students become religious and lay leaders who engage in and lead cutting edge counter-oppressive work in communities and congregations across the globe. We will lead the way with a theological education that matches the needs of 21st century religious leadership in a COVID-normalized world.
We will offer a Master of Divinity degree, a Master of Arts in Social Change, and a Doctor of Ministry program. We will have several thriving concentrations within our degree programs that prepare our students for different forms of religious and lay leadership. We will also have several certificate programs designed to help people prepare for different forms of leadership in religious and secular spaces, including our alumni, long time ministers, lay leaders, and others interested in leading sacred social change work across their organizations and industries.
Beyond our various formal programs, Starr King will offer a variety of community and public classes, workshops, seminars, and programs designed to better equip religious and lay leaders to engage in counter-oppressive sacred social change work. Starr King’s Center for Multi-Religious Studies will become a recognized leader in multi-religious scholarship and practice. Our annual Symposium will be a landmark program of our school and our thriving global immersion programs will attract participants from beyond the borders of Starr King.
The variety and diversity of offerings we develop by July 2027 will enable more people engage with and learn from Starr King.
