Claremont School of Theology

About CST: Claremont School of Theology (CST) is committed to an ecumenical and interreligious approach to theological education, representing a wide spectrum of both Christian and non-Christian denominations and faith traditions. CST’s partnership with the DSF was its first upon relocation to Claremont and is now its longest-running ecumenical partnership.

For more than 60 years, through communion and community, CST and DSF have worked together in the formation and preparation of Disciples of Christ and United Church of Christ students for lives of ministry and leadership.

This partnership between CST and DSF makes Claremont a unique and dynamic place for Disciples and UCC students to pursue education for ministry.

CST has connections throughout southern California and offers a variety of teaching modalities including face-to-face, hybrid, and online options. In fact, its world-class M.Div. program is now available in a 100% online format.


Scholarships: Many DOC/UCC students are eligible for generous scholarships. Please contact us to see if you qualify.

Pacific School of Religion

About PSR: By means of DSF, the Pacific School of Religion maintains a close relationship with the Disciples of Christ. Partly because of the denominational partnership between the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ, in 1987 PSR and DSF established a formal affiliation. The Dean of DSF in Berkeley holds a joint appointment at PSR and DSF, and the DSF Berkeley office is adjacent to the PSR campus. This provides a particularly strong Disciples presence at PSR, a channel of communication between the school, the Northern California / Nevada Region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the wider denomination.


PSR/DSF alumni/ae have said that their affiliation with DSF while at PSR provided them the intimacy and denominational opportunities of being at a Disciples seminary, while enjoying the wider ecumenical and interreligious educational experiences of PSR and the GTU.
