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.)

HDS Voices

David Woessner

I was drawn to HDS by the rigorous academics and the variety of the field education opportunities. I didn’t foresee how the shared spiritual dynamic among students, faculty, and staff would impact my life. This isn’t just a place to study. It’s a place to grow alongside others.
