He held a Bachelor with honors in History from College of the Holy Cross where he graduated in 1962 and obtained his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1970. O'Connell's Ph.D. thesis, "Social Implications of the Gaudiya Vaisnava Movement," studied the social and political aspects of Caitanya, Sri Krishna-Caitanya, and Avatara theology. He continued to study and teach the history of Hinduism throughout his career.
