Thank you for making Summer Study 2016 a success! We are planning 2017 now. Dates, classes, and news will be posted here. Sign-up for an e-mail update in the box to the right side of this page.

Summer Study 2016

Immerse yourself in week-long courses on topics from the Bible, religious history, and theology to pastoral care and practical tools for worship and ministry, as well as the arts and contemporary issues. Do this with expert and accessible instructors at one of the nation’s greatest divinity schools, at one of the world’s greatest universities.

Join us for Summer Study 2016 at Yale Divinity School, running in two sessions, from June 6-10 and June 13-17. While pastors and other ministry practitioners often find our courses especially valuable, Summer Study classes are open to adults of any background, profession, or age.

Courses can count towards continuing education requirements for some clergy. Participants receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course week. Summer Study classes do not provide course credit for current YDS students.

All are welcome to enroll in Summer Study and join us on beautiful Sterling Divinity Quadrangle in New Haven for a study retreat, for personal or professional development, or to rediscover Yale’s libraries, collections, and community.

See the list of classes here.
