Program Description:

At the Divinity School, we relish a community culture of intense engagement with traditions, languages ancient and modern, theories, methods, and constructive projects. Critically and self critically, whether your career path leads to the public sector, to religious leadership, to non-profit work or to the professoriate, here you can focus your course of study to gain a keener understanding of Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity and other religious traditions, rituals and communities of the past and present. The A.M. program is a two-year foundational program in the academic study of religion for students who wish to acquire the requisite skills to develop a research agenda for doctoral study, or to establish a basis for a career in such related fields as education, publishing, government service, nonprofit work, etc.
