Palmer has been enriching the lives of our students, communities, and the world for 90 years. The curriculum is profound, practical, and flexible. It is intended to help students with their biblical knowledge, church history, theology, faith and ethics. In conjunction with The Sider Center at Palmer Seminary, students will have the opportunity to build their relationship with Christ in the context of a faith community that highly values serving poor and vulnerable societies through peace with justice. Students will have the chance to learn about issues such as human trafficking, immigration, and public policy through hands-on experience with professors who are also practitioners.
