    Where exactly does a minister go for professional development? Through Ministers in the Vicinity, those involved in ministries—and already in possession of a theological degree—can connect with their colleagues and counterparts at the Harvard Divinity School. Open to ministers, pastors, priests, rabbis, and others engaged in full-time ministry, those who live within 50 miles of the Divinity School can take a limited number of courses, paying half the normal tuition and receiving academic credit, or auditing classes at a reduced rate.

    One cannot truly learn the meaning of ministry in the classroom. Through the Ministry Studies Field Education program, Harvard Divinity School (HDS) students go into the community to gain practical experience and a real understanding of ministry while helping people of all ages and from all walks of life. Working with an established network of more than 200 organizations—shelters, senior centers, youth advocacy centers, places of worship, schools, prisons, and hospitals—HDS students perform an astounding 32,000-plus hours of service in the community each year.

    For those who want perspective on a wide range of religious, ethical, scholarly, and theological topics, Harvard Divinity School (HDS) hosts a number of programs from which to choose. Among the free public lectures are offerings from the Center for the Study of World Religions, which sponsors an annual series of lectures and events on a particular theme and the presentations of scholars-in-residence in the World Religions Café; and lectures from visiting research associates in the Women’s Studies in Religion Program. But that’s just the beginning.
