Welcome to Berkeley Divinity School at Yale

Get in Touch

Berkeley Divinity School is the Episcopal seminary at Yale. 100% of students with demonstrated need receive full tuition scholarships.

Berkeley students are formed by daily worship, attention to the spiritual life, and a course of study in Anglican history and theology. As Yale students, Berkeley seminarians learn from world-renowned faculty, are a part of a highly qualified and diverse student body, and have access to libraries and facilities of the highest caliber. 

Berkeley was founded in 1854 and became a full partner to Yale Divinity School in 1971. Berkeley is the only accredited Episcopal seminary to do its work within a world-class university. For over 160 years, Berkeley has prepared clergy, educators, and leaders to serve throughout the Church. As the Church and its needs change, Berkeley is deeply committed to forming lay and ordained leaders to face modern challenges. 

Berkeley Divinity School at Yale trains people who will be effective storytellers of the love of God as made known in Jesus Christ our Lord. The story of Jesus is the story of love.
