Yale Divinity School

Andover Newton graduates have shaped religion in New England alongside Yale Divinity School graduates throughout the two schools’ respective histories. The schools share many values that make partnership in a time of significant change in religious practice both sensible and creatively inspiring.

“The faith communities, most notably the United Church of Christ and the American Baptist Churches (USA) that make up Andover Newton’s formal covenantal partnerships, require a particular set of gifts, credentials, and skills in addition to theological knowledge and understanding. Andover Newton has focused on educational preparation for such callings for 212 years. An Andover Newton professional education for ministry, coupled with a YDS graduate degree, would bring to the world a combination of educational resources and approaches that would serve the constituents of both Andover Newton and YDS in ways that neither could accomplish alone.” ~From the Innovations Grant proposal to the Association of Theological Schools
