Theology and Religion: Congratulations Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York, Doctor of Divinity

During winter congregation 2020, over 1500 of our students will graduate at ceremonies in Durham Cathedral. We will be joined by family and friends to celebrate their hard work and inspiring achievements, and to wish them well in their future endeavours.

We also award honorary degrees to inspiring individuals, who are nominated by our colleagues, in recognition of their long and exemplary service of national and international acclaim.

This year, we awarded the Archbishop of York an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity, in recognition of his service to the Church of England and for the support and encouragement he offers our students and to St John’s College.
