The Yale Divinity School Doctoral Studies Liaisons foster community between Yale Divinity School students interested in pursuing academic research and current Ph.D. students in Yale University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Liaisons are current Yale doctoral students, commonly YDS graduates, who act as peer mentors, providing advice and counsel to current Yale Divinity School students on the path to and through doctoral studies. Doctoral Studies Liaisons also organize and host faculty/doctoral student panels/workshops on various topics related to doctoral studies, from selecting programs to crafting a personal statement, choosing a writing sample, interviewing with programs, and the like. Please note that students contemplating doctoral studies are also strongly encouraged to consult with faculty members in the intended doctoral discipline. Look for announcements of panels and workshops in This Week at YDS.
