Office of Academic Affairs

At Yale Divinity School, students pursue varied vocations through a variety of degree programs, which draw on a rich array of curricular offerings across the theological disciplines.  The Office of Academic Affairs is responsible for academic and curricular programs and works collaboratively with the Dean, the faculty, teaching fellows, and students to address academic concerns and craft appropriate policies and procedures for the School.

The Registrar’s Office is part of the Office of Academic Affairs and handles academic needs of students. 

The Office of Supervised Ministries, also under the umbrella of the Office of Academic Affairs, helps students negotiate a supervised ministry experience that fits meaningfully with their needs and aspirations.
