History and Culture
Phillips Theological Seminary is a 110-year-old educational institution that offers theological education dedicated to learning the way of Jesus in order to cultivate vital communities, vital conversations, and the public good. The primary method of fulfilling that mission has been offering master’s level education for clergy candidates. A key challenge is expanding the Seminary’s educational offerings to include a wider range of professional and lay education programs.
The Seminary offers four master’s degrees, one doctoral degree, as well as a Graduate Certificate. The physical campus is in northeast Tulsa. Students take courses at the Tulsa campus weekly, in weekend and in week-long concentrated courses, and online. Phillips’s 110 students come from 17 states and 17 denominations.
Phillips is a progressive Christian graduate school—meaning we employ critical historical scholarship and spiritually-formed imaginations as we seek to understand what it means to follow Jesus’ way in the world today, emphasizing how Christians should contribute to the common good through working for peace and justice with compassion and intelligence. Some people call the seminary "liberal."
