Our Faculty

Evolve into inspiring leaders of faith with our acclaimed faculty.

Our faculty are teacher-scholars: accessible mentors and exceptional educators. The teacher-scholar model is more than an idea. The faculty at the School of Divinity is more than a collection of instructors. Just as you are invested in your education, our faculty are invested in you. Wake Forest is one of only two Top 30 National Universities in which faculty — not graduate assistants — teach all full-credit 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 you. Our faculty are invested in you.
