Connect with Students


"What is life at HDS really like?"

Prospective students consistently want to know the truth about the HDS experience. Perhaps the best way to gain a genuine sense of life at Harvard Divinity School is to interact with someone who is currently living it. Students from each of our degree programs have come together to provide firsthand resources for prospective students regarding what it means to be a member of the HDS community.

Ask a Student

Our Ask a Student program allows you to connect directly with a current HDS student. You may be interested in speaking with current students who share your academic interests or career goals, come from your home state or city, share your faith background, or had questions, as you may have, about housing or finding a job on campus.

To connect with a current student, email ask_students@hds.harvard.edu or leave a voicemail message at 617.495.0639.

Read the Student Blog

Our Student Blog offers candid reflections from current students on topics such as diversity, faculty access, courses, and the realities of studying in a pluralistic environment.

HDS Voices

HDS does not teach you what to think but, rather, how to think. You learn how to get to the heart of important issues and how to identify the difficult but necessary questions. Furthermore, in supporting interdisciplinary scholarship, HDS allows you to work creatively within and across traditional academic boundaries.
