They are the same! As a graduate of HDS, you are automatically a member of the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA). This means that in addition to having access to HDS-specific programming and events, you can also access all the resources and programming that the HAA has to offer.
Harvard Divinity School's Office of Career Services provides a variety of programs, tools, and services for alumni, including access to the Hired career management system. HDS alumni also have access to the Harvard Alumni Association's Career Resources service, a network of Harvard graduates committed to helping one another explore professional interests and career alternatives.
Alumni have complimentary access to the HDS Library and to ATLASerials®, an online collection of more than 70 major religion and theology journals. To gain access to the library and the ATLASerials® database, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that includes your full name and degree year. After a member of the staff has verified that you are a graduate of the School, you will be sent login information to access the database.
