Pre-Ministry

Students interested in pre-ministerial preparation are encouraged to consult the college chaplain or any member of the religion faculty. These advisors will offer guidance, support, and assistance with course selection. Though seminaries accept applicants with virtually any college major, Lyon suggests pursuing the following:

  1. English
  2. History
  3. Religion and philosophy

Regardless of a student's chosen major, he or she 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.
