The Divinity School is the graduate professional school for the academic study of religion at the University of Chicago.
The dominant ethos of the University of Chicago Divinity School -- toward the cultivation of new knowledge through research -- imbues both the Ph.D. and masters programs (M.A., M.Div., A.M.R.S.), which are taught by the same faculty. Many Divinity School faculty hold appointments in other departments or schools of the University, and we have a large cohort of associated faculty whose primary appointments range from the Medical and Law Schools to History, Classics and Anthropology. Divinity School students in turn take coursework throughout the University and encounter students from a range of departments in the over 100 courses offered by the Divinity School each year in the academic study of religion, across ten areas of study: Anthropology and Sociology of Religion, Bible, History of Christianity, History of Judaism, History of Religions, Islamic Studies, Philosophy of Religions, Religion and Literature, Religious Ethics and Theology. Our faculty and students engage in advanced research in pursuit of new knowledge about the human phenomenon of religion, as viewed from the broadest possible range of perspectives. We train students for all kinds of roles which require thinking and speaking about religion -- in general and specific religious communities, in traditions, texts, rituals, and other realities -- in a manner that is deeply informed, rigorously critical, and honestly engaged.
