Most seminaries and divinity schools expect that applicants for the Master of Divinity
degree are connected with a specific denomination. It is the candidate's religious
tradition, not a school's affiliation, that confers ordination after completion of the
degree. Therefore, students are encouraged to maintain their religious life while
attending Cornell and may do so by volunteer service in area congregations, campus
religious programs, summer opportunities for service and/or credit internships arranged
by the Chaplain and the Department of Religion. The Chaplain of the College maintains
active relationships with many theological schools and arranges for students to speak
with representatives who come to campus. The Chaplain is available for discussions
concerning the many dimensions of ministry and to assist students seeking admission to
graduate theological schools. The Department of Religion also supports and advises

students preparing for theological education.
