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.


The Divinity School prepares students for careers of field-defining scholarship, teaching, and publicly-engaged leadership. 


Join our community of scholars and professionals who guide the public’s understanding of religion.
