Pre-Ministerial Program

Professor Ned Wisnefske, Advisor

The most important requirement for students heading for seminary or graduate study in religion is a broad education. The General Education curriculum at Roanoke College provides that. Many majors are also useful for future training for the ordained ministry. However, it is very important to have a good grasp of the history of philosophy and at least an introduction to the various fields of religious study-sacred texts, history of religions, religion and society, and theology. Knowledge in these fields is often presupposed in seminary training and graduate school. It is advisable for students planning to attend seminary to consult with a member of the department of Religion and Philosophy and/or the Dean of the Chapel.
