About Us

Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary has been at the forefront of Christian theological education for more than 160 years. The seminary offers rigorous, intellectually challenging academics paired with a commitment to intentional spiritual formation that trains the mind, body, and spirit. Through diverse curriculum taught by our distinguished faculty and prominent practitioners, you will be stretched theologically and exposed to new models of ministry.

As a result of the merger of three institutions over the course of its history, Garrett-Evangelical brings together the best of progressive and evangelical values: critical and creative reasoning, evangelical commitment, and prophetic participation in society. Really, you could say it’s in our institutional DNA.

Garrett-Evangelical’s numerous connections and partnerships provide students with an abundance of resources and opportunities. Located in the geographic center and heart of Northwestern University, students can take classes at Northwestern, utilize its library resources, and more. The Association of Chicago Theological Schools, as well as joint programs and certificates with other outstanding institutions, are also available to help tailor your degree to your calling.
