At Duke Divinity School, we’re dedicated to unifying the life of prayer, study, and service to form leaders for the Christian church. Largely a residential learning community, students at the Divinity School are primarily formed for Christian ministry through our degree programs, worship, student activities and organizations, as well as opportunities to serve neighborhoods within the United States and throughout the world.
With dozens of Christian denominations and communities of faith represented among students, staff and faculty, the Divinity School is a rich ecumenical community that enjoys regular worship opportunities encouraged by our diverse houses of study and student groups.
