Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology

Bay Area Location

There are many coffee shops where you can study.

DSPT offers the best of both academics and quality of life.

Our students have the opportunity to bring the thought of St. Thomas into dialogue with the most contemporary philosophical, theological, and social debates in a place where the weather is always comfortable and there is no end to exciting things to do.

As a small collegial institution rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, DSPT is situated within the larger, theologically-diverse GTU community, and, more broadly, just up the hill from the University of California at Berkeley. DSPT occupies a place at the heart of Bay Area culture, characterized by its full range of traditions and perspectives.

In addition to the rich academic aspects of the neighborhood in which we reside, the Bay Area offers easy access to world renowned recreation and food. Cafes are bustling into the evenings on the streets of Berkeley as well as San Francisco.
