Yale Divinity School is a place where faith and intellect merge in the process of preparing future leaders for service in church and world. We hope these pages convey to you a bit of the excitement, spirituality, intellectual fiber, joy, and sense of community that characterize life on Sterling Divinity Quadrangle.  Here you will find important information about our degree programs, student interest groups, worship, faculty, staff, ministerial and leadership formation and much more. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send an email to divinity.admissions@yale.edu.

I look forward to meeting you on the Quad!
