Westminster Theological Seminary in California takes seriously the task of providing quality education to international students who may not have opportunities immediately available to them in their home countries and welcomes students from around the world each year who desire to pursue one of our graduate Biblical Studies programs.



  • Enable students to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to correctly interpret the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments
  • Prepare students to read and exegete the Greek and Hebrew text
  • Prepare graduates for graduate research opportunities in Old or New Testament studies; or, with further practical training, to use their biblical knowledge in such ministries as teaching, missions, counseling, or lay church leadership


  • Apply knowledge of the biblical languages, historical circumstances, and literary and theological interrelationships to exegete Scripture accurately
  • Analyze contemporary trends in biblical interpretation with discernment
Due to limited financial aid resources, Westminster Theological Seminary in California  cannot accommodate all international applicants. Biblical Studies applicants are selected on the basis of potential for significant contribution to Christ’s Church in general, and the Reformed and Presbyterian faith in particular, in their own home country. International students are typically expected to return to their native countries to minister upon completion of their studies at WSC.
