About Hartford Seminary

With roots that go back to 1834, Hartford Seminary is a non-denominational graduate school for religious and theological studies. What makes us unique is our multi-faith environment and our proven ability to prepare leaders for the complex world that surrounds us.

Hartford Seminary is an educational institution where a consciousness of God is cultivated and shared. We believe strong religious institutions and healthy communities of faith are necessary to the well being of individuals and society. We affirm the goodness of religious differences that exist in the world and we support faithful living in a pluralistic and multi-faith environment. We are committed to the pursuit of knowledge and academic excellence, to the understanding of religion and spirituality as they are lived out in daily life, to the exploration of issues of gender, race and class, and to education that integrates the many dimensions of human experience.

Campus information

Hartford Seminary offers degree programs and graduate certificates as well as leadership certificates. We seek out students who are interested in serving their communities and deepening their own faiths, as well as understanding the faiths of others.

Hartford Seminary also strengthens religious communities through its programs of research and education. By studying and sharing information, it enables local faith communities to remain strong.

The Hartford Seminary library is widely known for its depth and breadth of content. The library contains more than 92,000 volumes and 300 periodicals, and also offers online access to international databases with several million more titles.

Hartford Seminary is the home of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research and The Duncan Black Macdonald Center for the Study of Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations. The Seminary is also committed to providing leadership education to marginalized communities through the Black Ministries Program program and the Women’s Leadership Institute.

Situated along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, midway between New York City and Boston, Massachusetts, Hartford Seminary is an ideal place to participate in global dialogue.


Normally, international students are required to live on campus for the first year of their study at Hartford Seminary, subject to such housing being available. Because the programs offered by the Seminary are designed primarily for non-residential students, the Seminary does not guarantee accommodations on campus for students. Limited space may be available for rent in the Seminary’s Edith Mason Howard Ecumenical House and in other Seminary residences. International students are given priority for Seminary apartment space that is available. For more detailed information, contact the Director of Administration and Facilities. Several rental options for student housing are typically available in the surrounding area.

Any student living on-campus must receive the meningococcal vaccination (meningitis) and provide documentation to the Registrar’s Office. Students who do not comply with this requirement within one month of moving on-campus will be asked to leave student housing
