If you’re planning on going into some form of professional ministry or pursuing higher theological graduate work, The Association of Theological Schools suggests you take a broad range of courses in literature, history, natural sciences, social sciences, fine arts and music, languages, and religion (Christian and non-Christian). 

Pre-seminary students frequently choose to major in fields such as English, history, religion, and philosophy, but any liberal arts subject is appropriate including the sciences and mathematics and the fine arts. The program advisor can help you determine which course of study to follow. 

As a pre-seminary student at Wesleyan, you’ll be encouraged to take advantage of graduate program information sessions, round-table discussions with local ministers, and internships, all of which help you discern your vocation and prepare for post graduate study. 

For information about specific courses offered, please see our Academic Catalogue.
