Admissions Events

Official Visit Days

Spend a day with us! Visiting campus is a great way to see if this might be the right place for you to take the next steps in your theological education.  Official visit days typically include conversations with current students and admissions staff, attending a class, and a tour of the campus. 

Our official visit days for the 2019-20 academic year are listed below. We continue to welcome individual visits and encourage interested visitors to follow the links below.



  November 14, 2019: Visit Day and Cole Lecture 

This lecture engages with the person, thought, and work––the theo-ethical praxis of Professor Katie Geneva Cannon. The lecture sketches the aims of the (Western European) theological canon in relation to the aims of that preeminent theo-ethical scholar Katie Geneva Cannon, then contrasts Cannon’s praxis with Western practices of canon formation, and, finally, considers the impact and influence of the canon, cannons, and Cannon on theology and ethics.


Individual Campus Visits

Vanderbilt Divinity School welcomes individual campus visits if you are unable to attend one of our Official Visit Days. We strongly encourage individual visits to occur on Mondays or Wednesdays when classes are in session so that you can participate in community life activities and visit a class.
