Group Overview: Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary offers the finest possible education to pagans of all belief systems. It is dedicated serving those who seek to learn the Craft of the Wise, and minister in the ways of the Old Gods. At Woolston-Steen, we are devoted to bringing you traditional, formal magical training, blended with modern day concepts that support a practitioner ministering in today’s multi-cultural world.

Woolston-Steen is a state recognized Wiccan College, and was also the first to gain such recognition. The State of Washington’s Higher Education Coordinating Board has granted us the ability to grant degrees and certifications in Wicca Theology.

We our proud to say that it is the quality of our curriculum that leads the way in bringing you the best possible Wiccan Clerical training available. WSTS uses every resource at our disposal to promote well educated Wiccan clergy. Including bring the University right to you. In the past we have been scattered far, and wide; serving in small circles. But today, due to the use and popularity of Paganism in media, and pop culture, our numbers are strong, and are growing faster than we can provide services for. So join us in leading the way; ministering to a new and growing pagan population.

You may be familiar with traditional secular liberal arts colleges and how they work. Religious schools are under different governing rules in most states, UNLESS they also offer liberal arts degrees. The way they are qualified is different and may be unfamiliar to you. If you will visit the WHECB webpage (http://www.hecb.wa.gov/) , you will see that there are many other religious seminaries in our category.

Being a legal degree granting institution is not the same as accreditation. Accreditation is done by a separate non-profit organization made up of many legal degree granting institutions.

At this time Wicca does not have enough legal degree granting institutions to create an accrediting board. We hope that this will change in the future as more groups create Wiccan Institutions of Higher Education.

We also offer an Initiatory Path that coincides with the Scholastic Degree Path. You may wish to dedicate to one of our priests/priestesses here at the school and pursue your more traditional Coven Style system of training. This is a more intense training and much more personal than the Scholastic Degree system.

Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin.

We have students, who range in talents and abilities from the newest beginner to the seasoned elder. We also help group leaders qualify for their own 501c3 and become an Affiliated Coven or Church of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church, Intl.

Our classes fall into one of four categories; Magic, Myth, Ritual, or Wicca.

Magic
The heart of what draws many to the study of Wicca! This Department deals with classes and studies that cover such topics as: Natural Magic, Herbs, Animal Studies, Crystals, Divination, Ceremonial Magic, and the 8 Paths to Power. Students are encouraged to begin to develop specialties as they go through the courses in one or more of these topics. Classes on individual topics are offered based upon instructor availability.

Myth
These are the texts and writings of Wicca in many ways. The Myths are the starting point for learning about deity and pantheons. The Department covers topics such as: Greek, Celtic, Egyptian, Norse, Asian, The Americas, Hindu, etc. Classes on individual topics are offered based upon instructor availability.

Ritual
This Department deals with the community aspect of Wicca. Rituals are the way clergy provide their most visible service to the community. This Department covers topics such as: Ritual Construction, Sabbat Studies, Moon Studies, Shrine Scenes, and Rites of Passage Study. Classes on individual topics are offered based upon instructor availability.

Wicca
This Department deals with the fundamentals of the religion and of becoming clergy. Classes and studies in this Department cover topics such as: Wiccan History, Ethics, Church Government, Pagan Family, Environmentalism and Wiccan Sciences. These studies are the practical knowledge every cleric needs to know to be successful in running groups within the greater community. Classes on individual topics are offered based upon instructor availability.

Online Classes
All students will use the class website for reading their texts, and uploading assignments. For those with a slower computer, or who don’t want the social interaction of the Virtual Campus, you are invited to pursue your Associates Degree completely within the Online Website. Any browser will do, but Firefox, and Google work best with our website.

Online Virtual Campus
From the technologically enhanced world of our generation, we enjoy a visually rich classroom environment, able to connect students across the world on a private island Estate called Sacred Cauldron, in an extensive virtual reality known as Second Life. Never before have we been able to share so much, and work so experientially with students. You must experience the magic to understand and appreciate the work we are doing here. Below you can see the a slideshow featuring many of the wonderful spaces and faces that make up our online campus.

Festivals and Gatherings
We combine the online interaction with face to face educational opportunities. We have many Retreats, Gatherings and other destinations year long.

At WiccanSeminary.EDU, we take a multi-faceted approach to learning. With our broad network of support, and many affiliated covens across the world, we give you many opportunities to find the right learning system for you. Whether you are a beginner, looking for leadership training, or need help setting up your own 501c3 legal Wiccan Church, WiccanSeminary.EDU makes it easy, convenient and affordable for every budget.

Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin.

Online Campus – WiccanSeminary.EDU – Go to school through your google web browser. Take classes, find service opportunities, turn in assignments and receive grades. Earn your college degree in Wiccan Ministry, from Associates to Doctorate.

Virtual Campus – Sacred Cauldron, in Second Life – A ‘free-to-join’ 3D virtual world, where magic can be illustrated, and experienced. Your school and classmates are right at your fingertips, and you have all the resources to explore the enchanted realms. Public rituals, classes, and social events held daily.

Real Life Campus – Our Mother Church is just north of Seattle, WA and our College Campus is just east of Atlanta, GA. Both hold seasonal rituals, moons, classes, and festivals for you to enjoy.

Local Churches and Temples – We have live local events monthly, sometimes weekly in Affiliated covens all over the US and in countries abroad. We also gather at weekend festivals and events.

WiccanSeminary.EDU grants Scholastic Degrees. However, our Faculty is comprised mostly of 3rd Degree Instructors, who reside in various states around the USA, and DO take personal students for initiatory study. If you are interested in becoming an initiate of Wicca, we suggest you find a teacher in the school with whom you feel the most connected, and let them know that you’re interested in Initiatory Training.

Initiatory Training is extra. It is not a requirement to be a student in the school, and Teachers do NOT have to accept students into Initiatory Training. Each teacher will have their own set of requirements and expectations, and their own method of training, which works with the WiccanSeminary.EDU curriculum. If you choose to step upon this path, pray about it, think, take your time, and choose wisely. It’s a serious commitment. Changing teachers becomes difficult once a teacher has accepted your Student/Teacher Agreement.

How to get accepted onto an initiatory path? Be dependable, responsible, and thorough. Turn your homework in on time, offer to help, volunteer for service, attend rituals and devotionals, be respectful, and honorable.
