The course offerings for Summer Study 2018 are still being assembled. To provide a first preview and to enable some planning, here is a preliminary and partial roster of courses. This roster may change in its names, titles, and assignment to weeks; and it will be added to. By the end of January, each weekly session should comprise 8 courses. Registration will begin in February.
Week 1 (June 4-8):
- Bruce Gordon, “The Reformation and the Authority of the Bible”
- John Hare, “Faith and Reason”

Join us on the beautiful Sterling Divinity Quadrangle in New Haven for a study retreat, for personal and professional development, and to discover Yale’s libraries, collections, and community. Summer Study is open to the public and runs in two sessions.
Summer Study participants have full access to program professors and the abundant resources of Yale University (Sterling Memorial Library, Peabody Museum, Yale Center for Faith & Culture, etc.). While the ordained clergy from various denominations often find our courses especially valuable, Summer Study classes are open to adults of any background, profession, or age.
There is no weekly cost to the Summer Study program. Costs are associated solely with the courses for which participants register. Weekly courses are $450 per participant with a discount for current YDS students. There is also a discount available for multiple course selections. This discount does not apply to current student registrations.
Courses can count towards continuing education requirements for some clergy. Participants receive a Yale Certificate of Completion at the end of the course week.
Please share this program with churches under your care and pastors who are part of your denominational tradition—or anyone else in your networks who you think will enjoy the opportunity to immerse themselves in weeklong courses on topics essential to practical church ministry and personal enrichment.
The Yale Youth Ministry Institute’s registration process is separate from the YDS Summer courses.
Online registration for Yale Divinity School Summer Study courses begins in February 2018. For more information, see What to Expect.
