The Vanderbilt Divinity School is one of only four university-based interdenominational institutions in the United States, and the only one in the South. As such, its history provides a distinct vantage point for viewing what has occurred in theological education since the latter part of the nineteenth century.
The Divinity School seeks to fulfill the following objectives:
• to engage men and women in a theological understanding of religious traditions;
• to help persons, both lay and ordained, reenvision and prepare for the practice of Christian ministry in our time;
• to encourage individuals in their spiritual and intellectual growth;
• to prepare leaders who will be agents of social justice; and
• to educate future scholars and teachers of religion.
Degree programs enable students, with the aid of faculty advisers, to plan a course of study in light of their talents, interests, and professional objectives. Resources of the University and affiliated institutions offer rich opportunities for students to secure additional knowledge and skills in preparation for their vocations.
