The University of Evansville will launch its pre-ministry program this fall.
This program will be focused around religious studies, philosophy, English and world literature in addition to focus areas in other fields that may include archaeology, history, anthropology, art history, music, foreign languages among many others.
The announcement states that ancient Greek will be recommended as it plays an important part in the study of theological studies and seminary studies.
“Students in the program will receive an excellent liberal arts education with a wide range of fields of study,” Evansville professor in philosophy and religion and pre-ministry adviser James Ware said. “They will work closely with their pre-ministry adviser to plan a course of study that meets their goals and interests. Because of this flexibility, it is a great choice not only for those planning a career in ministry but also for students considering other career paths as well.”
Through this track, students will also be able to intern at local churches and para-church ministries in addition to the campus’ Neu Chapel and the annual Midwest Campus Festival of Young Preachers.
The degree program also follows recommendations from the Association of Theological Schools.
