Historic Seminary, Innovative Theological Education
New Brunswick Theological Seminary was founded more than 230 years ago – the first seminary established in North America . Our dedication to providing rigorous and accessible training for a diverse community of students has made us the institution of choice for those who demand an exceptional seminary education, a flexible academic schedule and the sustenance of a spiritually rich community.
Although New Brunswick Theological Seminary is a teaching institution of the Reformed Church in America, the Seminary considers it a privilege and a responsibility to train persons from many other denominations for ministry. As a result, NBTS’ student body and faculty reflect the rich diversity of God’s whole people.
An ecumenical and urban institution, NBTS offers distinguished academic training for our present and future American mosaic. Students come from a wide variety of careers and backgrounds, bringing with them rich experiences in faith and life. Our innovative curriculum provides the context in which all this diversity of ethnicity, culture, denominations and experience can be expressed in a single conversation: an educative process which values each person’s calling and gifts.
Our Professors take a personal interest in their students, understanding that preparation for ministry involves more than classroom instruction. A blending of high standards in traditional academics and in community analysis and public theology rests upon a foundation of an action-reflection model of theological engagement. Committed to excellence in ministry, the Faculty teaches with passion and creativity, encourages active critical thinking, and practices ongoing self-reflection in its work together and with students. The result is an unparalleled educational opportunity for the women and men who will lead the church in an increasingly complex and pluralistic context.
