Course Credit

The courses offered correspond both in quality and quantity of work to a full course given throughout the academic year (or to two half courses). Each course is eight units (two semesters) of credit; a unit is approximately equivalent to one semester-hour in academic institutions using that system of evaluation. Courses must be taken for a letter grade only. Students may audit, but only with payment of full tuition.

The Summer Language Program does not grant degrees. HDS degree students may count SLP courses toward the course requirements under the normal course restrictions of their program, including specific language study limitations. Non-HDS students may request official transcripts for credit earned. (Students enrolled in degree programs at other institutions are advised to have their SLP courses approved in advance by the appropriate officer in their own school if they wish to have credit applied toward their degree program.)

Part of what makes it such a pleasure to be at Harvard Divinity School is that it is a place that has been home to and nurtured top scholar-intellectuals. I think we are in a moment when what we do here—attempting to think in informed, complex, critical, and creative ways about religion—is important to much larger communities than our own.
