It is recommended that students preparing for Christian ministry use the Statement on Pre-Seminary Studies of the Association of Theological Schools of the United States and Canada as a guide.

Generally, any course of study leading to the bachelor's degree will satisfy the entrance requirements of theological schools. Some schools specify proficiency in Latin, Greek, or Hebrew or a combination thereof, for admission. Students are advised to check this and other specific admission requirements of the seminary of their choice.

Consideration should be given to an interdepartmental major in religion and a related discipline or a major in one of the following fields: classics, English, history, philosophy, political science, psychology, or sociology. Kelly Denton-Borhaug is the pre-ministry advisor.
