Inside Pre-Theology and Pre-Ministerial Studies

Pre-theology and pre-ministerial studies programs are typically offered through seminaries and religious universities. They often ready students for graduate studies in theology, ministry or religious doctrine as well as prepare them to eventually hold religious office. However, some public and liberal arts universities also offer these programs for those interested in non-religious careers who could benefit from learning the distinctions of diverse spiritual or cultural attributes.

Education Information

Pre-theology and pre-ministerial programs typically take two years to complete. Students may enter the programs with a college degree or without. While the type of school or institution determines the education in the pre-theology and pre-ministerial programs, courses typically focus on the history, traditions and beliefs of the appropriate religious body.
