With a mission to educate exceptional religious leaders, here is our fundamental promise: to guide and provoke people of faith on a rigorous, reverent, intellectual journey so they may discover how to lead and effect positive change in communities, ministries, and congregations.

The teacher-scholar model is more than an idea. Wake Forest is one of only two Top 30 National Universities in which faculty, not graduate assistants, teach all academic courses. The student-faculty ratio at the School of Divinity is 7 to 1. What you think matters; what you feel matters;
what you do matters, and it matters to
more than just yourself.

Engage your world, locally and globally. A required part of our curriculum, each year we feature courses that include a travel component to engage students in exploring diverse religious, cultural, and ethnic perspectives. In past years, students have traveled with faculty to Appalachia, New York, Nicaragua, Egypt, India and Israel.

A backyard for wholeness and healing. Through the Art of Ministry program, students are deeply involved in community engagement and internships throughout the Triad around homelessness and poverty, LGBTQ advocacy, chaplaincy, community supported agriculture, anti-racism, refugee resettlement, anti-human trafficking, and many others.

Ours is the Library of Champions. The Z. Smith Reynolds Library won the 2011 Association of College and Research Libraries Excellence Award. Think Super Bowl, but for libraries. And they have over 90,000 theological holdings to inform your inquiries.
