About the college

Western Seminary has a rich history that dates all the way back to 1925 when the Portland Baptist Bible Institute was founded by a man by the name of Walter B. Hinson. One year later and talk began of a graduate level seminary where theological education would be taught. Work got underway, the bible institute was replaced, and the Western Seminary was born. The seminary has a strong commitment to Christian beliefs and values and those are both bestowed upon the student’s that pass through the doors.


The San Jose campus is located in Los Gatos, California. The campus is deeply rooted in technology and its location is surrounded by culture and diversity. The San Jose library has online journal articles, 6,000 library books and computers filled with Bible software. It really is a researcher’s dream library. The faculty at the campus is highly devoted to their faith and their student’s success.


At the Western Seminary, students can take courses in programs that lead to completion by degree, diploma or certificate.
