Divinity Graduate Education
Among the 207 members of the incoming class, there were a number of students who know the campus better than most. Nine students, seven of whom are in the three-year master of divinity degree program, are graduates of Duke University, and three were participants in Pathways, a national Lilly Endowment-funded program that encourages gifted undergraduates to consider entering ministry.
This was the largest number of Duke graduates among an entering class in many years. Schools represented by three or more new students include Wheaton College, Wake Forest, UNC Chapel Hill, and the College of William and Mary.
