HDS Voices

Kate DeConinck, ThD student
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.
