Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary combines a rich tradition of superb academic scholarship with cutting-edge educational innovation. Rooted in the gospel and God’s Word, Gordon-Conwell is an interdenominational seminary seeking to “advance Christ’s Kingdom in every sphere of life by equipping Church leaders to think theologically, engage globally and live biblically.”
Nearly 2,000 students from 94 denominations and 53 foreign countries are receiving a thoughtfully evangelical, biblically grounded, transformational education at our four campuses. You can explore a classical model of residential education in Hamilton, MA; benefit from an urban context offering classes in five languages in downtown Boston, MA (CUME); or engage adult educational models in Charlotte, NC, and Jacksonville, FL. Each campus is uniquely positioned to prepare you to make a Kingdom difference wherever you are called.
Along with these campuses, we provide distance learning and online programs to address your needs, regardless of what your location and vocational commitments are. And our Doctor of Ministry programs, delivered at various locations, are geared to provide strength and renewal for your own ministry and calling. These offerings, in addition to our wide variety of master’s degrees, will provide you with a classical theological education, the opportunity for deep spiritual formation and an emphasis on global engagement and practical training from faculty who have an international reputation in the areas of biblical studies, ministry and theology. Students enrolled at Gordon-Conwell also have the unique opportunity to take classes through the Boston Theological Institute (BTI), a consortium of nine seminaries and theological schools in the Boston area. In addition to Gordon-Conwell, schools in the consortium include
- Andover Newton Theological School
- Boston College – Department of Theology
- Boston College – School of Theology and Ministry

Gordon-Conwell is committed to making its education affordable for students. Our Partnership Program, the only one of its kind, provides a $9,000/year scholarship, enables you to build a supportive network of friends and family, and teaches valuable stewardship skills. In addition, we offer a variety of scholarships and tuition discounts at every campus.
So if you come to Gordon-Conwell, what can you expect? You can anticipate being pushed to think in ways you never imagined. You will be prodded to deepen your walk with Christ, while looking outward to the needs of the world. You will meet professors and fellow-students who may think differently than you do about those parts of our faith that are secondary to the core. And, they will expand your own theological and spiritual horizons. You will find professors who are world renowned while giving themselves personally to your needs and concerns. You will be encouraged to have a passion for a world without Christ, while giving attention to the needs of the whole person and the whole of society. You will sometimes be nudged beyond your comfort zone to become prepared to serve Christ wherever he calls you.
