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

Karen King

I am very fortunate to work with faculty who are deeply interested in research and what's happening in the study of religion. Although HDS offers a very high quality of ministerial training and great resources for field study, it also offers the ability to study religion in the context of a university.
