Latinx Studies at Seminary of the Southwest

For more than four decades Seminary of the Southwest has offered Latino/Hispanic studies as part of its curriculum.  Today, all students who attend Southwest participate in our institutional commitment to Latinx communities and ministries. Seminarians who are preparing for ministry and service in Latinx communities enroll in our distinctive concentration curriculum.

Southwest’s programs in Latinx Studies:

  • Prepares students for multicultural liturgical ministry with a weekly bilingual/bicultural Eucharist and weekly Compline in Spanish and special liturgies throughout the year.

  • Engages all students in witness and education at the US-Mexico border through our Encuentro course required for all junior M.Div. students.

  • Creates a vibrant bilingual community through our unique Plática program.

  • Builds communities of support for Latinx seminarians and their allies at Southwest and across the church.

  • Includes and welcomes Latinx LGBTQ students, faculty, staff
