The Graduate Theological Union (GTU) was founded in 1962. The establishment marked the nation’s first successful cooperative graduate study program leading to a Doctor of Theology degree.
There is always something happening at the GTU. Lectures, symposia, workshops, celebrations, art exhibits, prayer, writing groups, community conversations, all bringing diverse and creative voices to engage in new levels of understanding and collaboration. Each of us can find a way to engage and contribute in our own way.
GTU students range in age from mid-twenties to early seventies, and have families and/or obligations within their communities, donominations, and/or professional networks. Not all live in Berkeley, and many find it necessary to work to support their studies. Community is something that is built intentionally by committed individuals. Student community provides an avenue for sharing resources and experiences, learning about faculty, making a difference.
The Graduate Theological Union is accredited by WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC)
