Santa Clara University

Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University in Berkeley

Graduate Theological Union


The Graduate Theological Union (GTU) is an educational institution established to offer programs of study leading to graduate degrees in theology and to function as an instrument of collaboration and cooperation among its member schools and institutes. The GTU is comprised of six Protestant and three Roman Catholic seminaries and 11 centers and programs that extend GTU's inter-religious community and curriculum.

Each seminary in the GTU admits its own students, designs its own professional programs and grants its own professional degrees; but course offerings, use of classrooms, days and hours of classes and registration are coordinated through the Dean's Office of the GTU. The faculty of the various member schools constitute the faculty of the Union.

The Jesuit School has been a fully participating school of the GTU since January 1969, and shares a common Registrar and library with the GTU. Through this arrangement, Jesuit School students are eligible to register in all courses offered by the nine participating seminaries. Cross-registration is convenient because all the campuses are within walking distance of each other.

You may view a map of the GTU, or visit the GTU website for more information about the GTU and the Jesuit School's membership in the Union.
