The Boston Theological Institute (BTI)

Andover Newton is a founding member of the Boston Theological Institute (BTI), a consortium of nine theological schools in the Boston area. For over 40 years, the BTI has fostered interdenominational and interfaith exchange, and has united its member schools in sharing academic courses, library facilities, programs and dialogue.

The BTI consists of Andover Newton Theological School, Harvard Divinity School, Episcopal Divinity School, Boston University School of Theology, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Boston College Department of Theology, St. John’s Seminary, Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, and Hebrew College. Together, they offer more than 700 courses taught by over 200 faculty members. Though students normally take required courses at Andover Newton, degree candidates in good standing may take up to one-half of their credits at other BTI schools with departmental approval.

The BTI also sponsors lectures, discussions, and publications in areas such as ecumenism and international mission, religion and social conflict, interreligious dialogue, faith and science, religion and ecology, minority and women’s concerns, field-based education, restorative justice, and urban theological education.

The BTI office, located conveniently on the Andover Newton campus, publishes a weekly newsletter during the fall and spring terms with news of events and programs at member schools. The office number is (617) 527-4880.
