Princeton Theological Seminary was established in 1812, the first Seminary founded by the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church. The establishment of The Theological Seminary at Princeton marked a turning point in American theological education.
Field education connects the classroom and the church, integrating academic learning with the practice of ministry. In supervised ministry settings in churches, hospitals, and social service agencies in rural, urban, suburban, and international settings, students practice acts of ministry and reflect on those actions.
A variety of housing options are offered, including on-campus apartments and dorms. Most students live in campus housing, which is about half the cost of local non-Seminary housing.
The Princeton Theological Seminary Library collection offers substantial resources for theological study and research at all levels
Residential campus is a place where faith and learning intersect in worship, study, work, and play. Students pray together, enjoy meals together, and minister to each other and to the community.
