Science for Seminaries Phase I Final Report

In this final report, we summarize the activities and findings from the pilot Science for Seminaries project, in which several theological training institutions introduced scientific content in practical ways into their core educational programs.

The Science for Seminaries program, long recommended by American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) advisors and the Association of Theological Schools (ATS), aims to equip religious leaders with solid scientific exposure that is relevant to their future congregations and ministries. Through strategic engagement with leaders in theological education and future religious leaders-in-training, Science for Seminaries anticipates a positive impact not only on seminary education but on the broader American public. It is our hope and vision that the enthusiasm expressed by participants in the program will be carried into the future congregations of seminary students, establishing a vibrant atmosphere conducive to informed discussions and contemplation of scientific advancement and its impact on life, knowledge, and service in today’s world.
