Living Theology. Transforming our World.

Jesuit School of Theology

The Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University, located in Berkeley, California, is an international center for the study of theology. Students come to JST from across the nation and around the world to prepare for a broad range of ministries and service to the church and world.

Preparation for Every Spiritual Path in Life

The Ignatian tradition of spirituality and discernment permeates every aspect of JST. With an abundance of opportunities to exercise and reflect on real-world pastoral applications, students practice what they learn in class. Each student may participate in daily liturgy, regular spiritual direction, retreats, many offerings in Ignatian spirituality, and other opportunities for spiritual growth. Faithful to the Catholic tradition, world-class faculty teach students to think critically about theology and how to live a faith that does justice in service of the Church and the world.
