Find Your Major


Professional ministry can take the form of hospital chaplaincy, social work, education, music and the arts – as well as traditional parish ministry. There is no single required course of studies for the pursuit of professional ministry. However, the College offers a Pre-Seminary Studies Track through the Philosophy and Religion major that is designed to help students discern their vocational direction in the ministry, as well as to provide students with an academic foundation for success in graduate seminary education. Please consult the Philosophy and Religion major for details.
