school of theology and ministry

Copley Square, Downtown Boston

Home to over 40 colleges and universities in the metropolitan area, Boston has established itself as an academic center whose faculties and students create an extraordinary intellectual environment. A myriad of courses, lectures, workshops, museums, galleries, and more support and aid students in their academic endeavors. Rich in history, intellectual culture, and academic opportunities, Boston provides students with almost limitless resources for scholarship and enrichment.

STM students have unique access to the riches of Boston's academic inquiry through two of the area's consortia. As a member of the Boston Library Consortium, students gain entry to the libraries of 17 colleges and universities in the area including Boston University, Brandeis, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern, and Tufts.

The STM is also a member of the Boston Theological Institute (BTI). The BTI is one of the largest theological consortia in the world, bringing together the resources of universities and divinity schools throughout the greater Boston area. STM students can take up to one-half of their coursework through other BTI institutions. Students have full access to all the theological libraries of the BTI as well as a vast array of programming, lectures, certificate programs, study and service trips, and student fellowship opportunities.
