In this program students of many faith communities study side by side in order to foster a greater understanding of interreligious dialogue and work. As part of its growing diversity in ministry offerings and strengths, HDS has established a newly focused buddhist ministry initiative and other such initiatives may follow. The uniqueness of the HDS MDiv experience lies in the belief that to be a learned minister it is imperative both to study one's own religious tradition and to be exposed to others.
