A global leader in the study of religion, the Divinity School approaches religious studies and religious leadership with attention to inquiry, innovation, and awareness of how scholarship impacts questions of public and contemporary concern.
The Divinity School brings together—and pioneers—multiple perspectives and approaches to the study of religion. We teach the critical skills that are necessary for relating to the evolving and complicated roles religion plays in the worlds we inhabit, in meaningful, responsible, creative, and adaptive ways. Work here is deeply informed, intellectually curious, and honestly engaged.
