Welcome to the Faculty of Divinity

The Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge, is an international centre of excellence for study, teaching and research in Theology, Biblical Studies, Religious Studies, and the Philosophy of Religion and Ethics.

We are a strong academic community combining outstanding research with teaching for more than 300 students,  We are housed in a fine modern building, specially constructed in the round, adjacent  to related Faculties in the Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences, on the Sidgwick site in Cambridge.

A notable strength of the Faculty of Divinity is the great variety of backgrounds and nationalities of its staff and students.

Our programmes offer disciplined reflection on pressing religious, philosophical, ethical and theological questions, both historical and contemporary. Our degrees equip graduates to excel in a wide range of careers in a complex world of competing value.

The quality of our teaching programmes rests upon our research, the excellence of which is internationally recognised. We are home to scholars who are leading authorities in their subjects and to some major innovative research projects.
