Harvard Divinity School offers five degree programs: master of theological studies (MTS), master of divinity (MDiv), master of theology (ThM), master of religion and public life (MRPL), and doctor of philosophy (PhD), key features of which are briefly compared below. While minor program requirements are subject to change from year to year, to help applicants make an informed decision about which program is the best fit for their academic and vocational goals, we encourage applicants to review and become familiar with current program requirements before submitting an application for admission.
The online application for entrance in fall 2021 is no longer available as the admissions deadline has passed. Current applicants may log in to their application and new applicants should return to our website in late summer/early fall for the 2022 online application for admission. Applicants interested in the PhD program in religion should contact Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences directly.
