Program Overview

The Pre-Seminary studies program involves taking coursework in Biblical studies, Greek, Hebrew and Christian doctrine. Students in the pre-seminary program intend to attend seminary to become pastors after they graduate from Concordia University, St. Paul.

The Pre-Seminary Studies program involves taking coursework in Biblical studies, Greek, Hebrew and Christian doctrine in preparation for a career as a professional minister of the Gospel. You’ll work closely with a pre-pastoral advisor in choosing courses that position you for further study at a Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod seminary or other seminary. You can choose from a wide variety of liberal arts majors that will help you gain the skills and knowledge necessary for seminary entrance and success.

At Concordia, small class sizes and one-on-one relationships with your professors allow them to know your skills and characteristics well enough to write insightful letters of recommendation. And Concordia’s emphasis on relevant, hands-on learning will give you plenty of experiences outside the classroom that will stand out on your seminary application.
