Boston Theological Interreligious Consortium
The Boston Theological Interreligious Consortium (BTI) is a partnership between theology schools and seminaries including:
- Boston College Department of Theology
- Boston College School of Theology and Ministry
- Boston University School of Theology
- Gordon Conwell Theological School
- Hartford Seminary
- Harvard Divinity School
- Hebrew College and Rabbinical School
- Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology
- St. John’s Seminary
The BTI is inherently interfaith in nature due to the diversity within our affiliated schools, which include Evangelical, Jewish, Protestant, Nondenominational, Nonsectarian, Greek Orthodox, and Roman Catholic traditions. Founded in 1968, the BTI and its schools represent how Boston has long been a major hub for theological education in the US. In addition to our diversity in faiths, the BTI also has over 2,200 students from over 60 different countries. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for students and faculty to share ideas and resources. We also connect libraries, fund BTI-wide programs and student conferences, and offer certificate programs. Learn more about what the BTI Consortium has to offer.
What courses are offered each semester?
The BTI compiles a list of courses being offered through all participating BTI schools. Course selections for the current semester can be found in the searchable PDF catalogue, available on the BTI’s website. Students are also invited to contact other BTI schools directly (or see the web site links below) to obtain the course list for a given semester.
Don’t miss out on the great events and opportunities happening throughout the BTI. Every two weeks, the best events, calls for papers, and announcements are packaged into a newsletter geared towards BTI students. Cross-registration updates and announcements are also sent each semester.
