Welcome to the Boston Theological Institute

Studying The Boston Theological Institute (BTI) is an association of ten university divinity schools, schools of theology, and seminaries in the Greater Boston area. It is one of the oldest and largest theological consortia in the world. Enrolling in one institution allows you to study at all of them. The BTI enables faculty, students and the public at large to engage in robust interreligious dialogue, learning, and community.
