The Graduate Program in Religion

The Graduate Program in Religion—part of the Duke Graduate School—seeks to foster the scholarly study of religion and to equip persons of distinguished academic ability to teach in departments of religion in colleges and universities, as well as in theological seminaries.

Unlike many of its peer programs, which are housed in either a university religion department or a divinity school, the Graduate Program in Religion is a collaborative program involving the Department of Religious Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences and Duke Divinity School. Strengths of the program include its small, highly selective student cohort and distinguished faculty, as well as ample resources for research, mentoring, and professional development.
