Courses by MDiv Distribution Category
Projected Through 2016

Show Course Offerings for 2013-2014

Courses below are listed according to distribution categories and indicate which courses may be used to satisfy the MDiv distribution requirements. Some designations are obvious and approval for distribution requirement is simple and automatic. Other courses, however, may explore more than one religious tradition or may not be related to a particular tradition at all. This makes them much harder to categorize. For this reason, the list below should be taken simply as a guide. Courses might apply to other categories to satisfy HTP or OR requirements in a student's particular case. Approvals of these exceptional cases are made by the MDiv Curriculum Committee. Cross-registered courses from other schools may also meet distribution categories subject to the same approval.

Not all courses available and of interest to MDiv students belong to a distribution category. The program was designed with sufficient flexibility to allow selection from among all course offerings. MDiv students are encouraged to select elective courses when appropriate to their interests or program.

Please see HDS Handbook for Students for descriptions of the distribution categories, as well as related MDiv requirements.

N.B.: Courses that are classified as two or more religious traditions may normally only count as an HTP or a comparative course toward an MDiv student's other religion requirement.

Courses listed within square brackets are not offered in 2013-2014, but are expected to be offered in future years.
