Each Field of Study determines the specific requirements for its students. However, the general requirements for the doctoral degree are as follows: two years of course work must be completed. During these two years of course work, the Yale Graduate School Honors requirement must be met that is, a grade of Honors in at least one year graduate course or two term graduate courses, earned after matriculation in the Graduate School and during the nine-month academic year. The purpose of the course is to encourage rigorous conversation about religion among students with a diverse set of disciplinary and documentary interests. Although such a course may have professional benefits, this course is not a course in professionalization, nor is it a course on the classic debates in religious studies. It is a course about the problem of religion for scholars in the humanities.
