St. James Degree Programs

Our programs are purpose-driven without filler or busy work. These curricula have been praised by long-established institutions, and our graduates have thrived in the professions for which we have prepared them. They have been taught to surrender themselves to the complete control of the Holy Spirit every single day.

We offer M.A to Ph.D. programs in one seamless, enriching process through the Seminary, the College of Holistic Health, and the College of Psychology. Students may complete the master’s portion only.
