Download copies of the Divinity School's brochures and informational literature.
One of the hallmarks of any campus visit—or on-the-road conversation with an admissions representative—is the procurement of a visit folder containing both general and tailored literature about a school and its degree programs and community life. Recognizing that not all prospective and admitted students have the chance to make it to Swift Hall (even while we hope you will), we collect, here, a great many of the school's informational publications for your review. Once you have filled your digital folder, consider scheduling a Skype appointment with the Divinity School's Coordinator for Recruiting and Admissions, John Howell, who can be reached at or (773) 702-8249.
