May 2017, the Graduate Division of Religious Studies held its annual graduation celebration, shortly before the graduate school’s PhD Hooding Ceremony Reception and Commencement.

This year, Doctorates of Philosophy were awarded to Cherita Cloy, Nicholas DiDonato, Rebecca Esterson, Brian Jenkin, Brian Loh, and Nikolas Zanetti. Masters Degrees were awarded to Ronald Le Bel and Hye Jin Lee.
