Pre-seminaryConsult the Area Associate Dean of Biblical Studies, Theology and Philosophy, Michael Walters
For those who expect to attend seminary after college, The Association of Theological Schools offers the following guidelines:
• Students should develop to a satisfactory degree their ability to think independently, to communicate effectively, and to do research.
• Students should possess a general knowledge of past and present culture through study in the humanities and the natural and social sciences.
• The biblical languages are useful tools to acquire in the pre-seminary period. Latin may be helpful, especially in some traditions. Modern languages such as German, French, and Spanish are also valuable.
