International Students

Andover Harvard Theological Library

The HDS Office of Student Life recognizes the challenges international students experience when becoming acquainted with a new country, culture, and lifestyle, as well as the adjustments associated with a new academic environment. The Office of Student Life seeks to make these transitions as smooth as possible. All international students are encouraged to connect with the Office of Student Life at studentlife@hds.harvard.edu.

It is also extremely important that all international students register with the Harvard University International Office. Visit their website for useful advice and information. The HDS liaison in the International Office is:

HDS Voices

Giovanni Bazzana, Associate Professor of New TestamentHDS students have shown me, through their conversations in and outside the classroom, that diversity is never a problem; rather, it is frequently a constructive element when interlocutors are willing to listen to each other and willing, always, to question their own presuppositions.
—Giovanni Bazzana, Associate Professor of New Testament
