Student Resources

Mandala

The most important sources of information for students are linked below.  All students should familiarize themselves with these administrative guidelines.

Graduate School of Arts & Sciences
The Graduate Division of Religious Studies (GDRS) is one of the many graduate programs available within the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences here at Boston University.   Both prospective and current GDRS students can find general information about graduate education at the University as well as useful links to graduate resources, regulations, and administrative offices through the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences website.

GRS Bulletin
Updated annually and no longer in print form, the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Bulletin is available entirely online.

GDRS Graduate Student Handbook: PhD Students and Master’s Students
A complement to the GRS Bulletin, this handbook is a valuable reference tool for students in the GDRS. It provides answers to students most frequently asked questions and outlines both the academic and administrative expectations of GDRS students as they progress through their degree. 

Time Frames for Completion of Degrees
Please stay aware of the time frames to complete each step in your respective degree program.

GRS Forms, Policies, & Procedures
The majority of the forms you will need to use on a regular basis are available here in electronic form.  Hard copies are also always available in the files outside Religion 302.

Registration
