Candidacy for Ministry
The theology major prepares students for pastoral ministry. Because entering the ministry involves much more than the completion of a course of study, the Division of Religion has established a candidacy program for ministry which emphasizes the development of the individual in the skills and experience essential to pastoral ministry. Students enter the division portfolio program in the freshman year and apply for admission to candidacy for ministry in the second semester of the sophomore year. Upon acceptance into the candidacy program, students submit a plan for fulfilling the requirements of the final two years of the program. Details of the requirements for the candidacy program are available in the Division of Religion.
