CSS offers courses in numerous disciplines and cross-disciplines, especially theology, the arts, spirituality, history, and biblical studies. Emphasizing interreligious engagement, cultural studies, and personal spiritual formation, CSS functions as a think-tank for Swedenborgian studies globally and also as the official seminary of the Swedenborgian Church of North America.
