Welcome to the website of Duke University's Graduate Program in Religion!  We appreciate your interest in our program, an exciting collaboration between the Department of Religion in Duke's College of Arts and Sciences and Duke Divinity School.  A recent National Research Council report indicates that the GPR ranks among the very strongest Ph.D. programs in the nation.*

The GPR is a diverse and dynamic community of faculty members and graduate students, marked by scholarly exchange with each other and with our colleagues in the broader university and at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (only eight miles away). 

We invite you to explore this website, which provides guidance for both prospective and current graduate students.  It offers important information as you consider applying or as you plan your course of study.  Please contact us with your questions.  We look forward to knowing you better.
