Our houses of study help prepare you for service—and ordination—in the communities and denominations where you’ll serve. They include the Baptist House of Studies, the Anglican Episcopal House of Studies, Black Church Studies, Methodist House, the Presbyterian/Reformed House of Studies, and the Hispanic House of Studies.
These houses support students in a number of ways: by advising students on curricular and extra-curricular needs, counseling and preparing candidates for judicatory examinations or interviews, connecting students with mentors, hosting community get-togethers, and holding other events, services, and workshops.
Anglican Episcopal House of Studies
The Anglican Episcopal House of Studies (AEHS) at Duke Divinity School is a community of students, faculty, and staff dedicated to nurturing and preparing Episcopalians and other Anglicans for future service to the church.
The Baptist House of Studies prepares students for Baptist ministry through theological education and participation in a supportive community as they are being formed for Christian ministry at the Divinity School.
Black Church Studies
Black Church Studies leads the Divinity School in the great work of strengthening the body of Christ through critical reflection, dialogue, and practice that is propelled by the prophetic witness of global Black Church traditions.
Hispanic House of Studies
The Hispanic House of Studies works to support and strengthen ministries to and with Hispanics and Latinos. It also works with The Duke Endowment and the North Carolina and Western North Carolina Conferences of the United Methodist Church.
Methodist House provides opportunities for United Methodist and other Pan-Methodist students (AME, AMEZ, CME, Nazarene, Free Methodist, and Wesleyan) to gather for fellowship and formation.
Presbyterian/Reformed House of Studies
The Presbyterian/Reformed House of Studies seeks to nurture the Reformed Christian community at the Divinity School by supporting and cultivating students as persons, pastors, and leaders in the life of the Reformed Christian tradition.
