Visiting the School of Theology

The School of Theology’s Admissions Office typically loves prospective student visits to campus, as we believe it’s the best way to experience the fullness of our community life and educational opportunities. However, due to the public health restrictions put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19, Boston University is not currently welcoming any visitors to its campus. This means that, unfortunately, we cannot welcome prospective students for on-campus visits at this time. We look forward to a time when individual on-campus visits will begin again. In the meantime, we are planning a number of “virtual visit days” that you can sign up to attend below, and our whole Admissions Office staff is available for individual meetings by phone or Zoom.¬†Feel free to call, text, or email our Admissions Office (617-383-9347 or to set up a time to speak with an Admissions Office representative.

Attend Our Virtual “Catch-a-Glimpse” Visit Days

Catch-a-Glimpse is our longstanding open house event where we welcome prospective students to campus to “catch a glimpse” of all that’s happening in the life of our school. This year we’re moving Catch-a-Glimpse online, via hour-long Zoom events structured to help prospective students learn the basics about BUSTH. These events will include a “virtual tour” of the building, presentations on the School’s academic and community life, and important information about housing and financial aid. By the end of the hour we hope you’ll have a sense of what makes BUSTH so special among seminaries. And from there you can always schedule an individual visit with an Admissions representative if you’d like to ask further questions. We hope to see you at a future virtual Catch-a-Glimpse event.

Our spring 2021 dates will be posted here after the holiday break. Come back the second week in January 2021 and you should be able to sign up for a Catch-a-Glimpse event here on this webpage then. Until then, have a wonderful holiday!
