At Waterloo Lutheran Seminary (WLS), the founding institution of Wilfrid Laurier University, our ecumenical, multifaith and inclusive contact creates a diverse and vibrant community committed to faith in service of the common good. At WLS, you will experience a place where spirituality accompanies academic curiosity to inspire global citizenship.
For more than 100 years, we have educated leaders for church and the world. Through our programs, you’ll learn the art of engaging the resources of a public faith in response to the demands of a changing world. Our association with Laurier provides resources for you to pursue research and scholarly interests in an environment that fosters a high standard of academic excellence.
Our graduates find rewarding careers where they serve, with heart, in various roles such as counsellors, pastors, ministers, chaplains and social workers.
