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 the Harvard University International Office website for useful advice and information. The HDS liaison in the International Office is:

HDS Voices

Serving the local homeless community at the Outdoor Church added purpose and energy to my classroom experience. I was not learning theology for theology's sake, but as a living, breathing tradition brimming with good news even for those at the edges of our society. This realization gave clarity to my own faith and sense of vocation.
