Who Comes To Columbia?

EACH STUDENT AT COLUMBIA IS A GIFT TO THE COMMUNITY. Columbia students range in age from 20-something to 60-plus. While many are from the southeastern United States, others are drawn from all corners of the world.

Politically and theologically, they represent a diverse spectrum of viewpoints. Yet, all of our students share one essential characteristic: God has called each one to faithful discipleship and leadership in Christ’s Church.

 

Student backgrounds are represented by a wide array of undergraduate experiences in liberal arts, sciences, mathematics, engineering, and other professional degrees.

Some students enroll in a basic degree program immediately after college; some after careers in fields such as banking and finance, education, law, marketing and communications, medicine, and visual and performing arts. God uses all of these vocations to provide depth and perspective on our common calling in the world.

Why Columbia?

Columbia is a great place to receive training for every aspect of ministry through Encountering God, Cultivating Leaders, and Transforming Communities. Below are just some of the reasons why women and men from all over the United States and around the world come to Columbia Theological Seminary.
