Yale University


The Department of Religious Studies at Yale University has trained several generations of scholars who have shaped their fields of scholarly concern. The Graduate Program in the Department of Religious Studies is organized into ten Fields of Study. Each Field of Study has its own requirements for admission and its own curriculum. Applicants must specify when they submit their online application the field to which they are applying. Students who believe their areas of research interest fall between two existing Fields of Study should e-mail the relevant faculty in advance of their application to consult about how to submit their application. All specific information about Field of Study and its admission requirements and curriculum can be obtained by clicking on the appropriate Field of Study.

The Graduate Program in the Department of Religious Studies involves faculty from across Yale University, with special ties to the faculty in Yale Divinity School (YDS). However, the Graduate Program application is distinct from application to YDS. Students interested in YDS should refer to this page.
