Pre-Ministry Preparation

Students interested in pre-ministerial preparation are encouraged to consult the College Chaplain or any member of the religion faculty. Guidance, support, and assistance with course selection will be offered through such advisors. Though seminaries accept applicants with virtually any college major, the following are recommended as especially good preparation: English, history, and religion and philosophy.

Regardless of the major chosen, the pre-ministerial student should take courses in the following areas: religion, English, foreign language, history, philosophy, and psychology. Students interested in pre-ministerial preparation should consult with a member of the religion faculty and the faculty of their chosen major to work out an effective course of preparation.
