Alumnus Bjørn Thyrring ’20

Bjørn Thyrring ’20 is currently pursuing his master of theological studies (MTS) degree at Harvard Divinity School, with a focus on religion, ethics, and politics. As an MTS student, Bjørn has engaged with many of the most pressing sociopolitical issues of our time—including the potentiality of American religious activism as an impetus for criminal justice reform and the impacts of global capitalism on religious communities in the developing world. After completing his MTS at Harvard, Bjørn will be attending law school where he hopes to put the ethical principles and Jesuit values he gained as a student of religion to use for the betterment of our society.
