What Should My "Ministry" Major Be? 

Austin College's Religious Studies major is designed to fulfill all course requirements for graduate school. However, you may choose a major in a related field (e.g., philosophy, sociology, anthropology) in addition to completing all of the prerequisite courses for graduate school.

What Ministry Courses are Required? 

Specific course requirements depend on the ministry discipline you would like to pursue.  You should meet with our Pre-Ministry advisor, Chaplain/Director of Church Relations, John Williams, to layout your four-year plan.

During each term, representatives from different theological seminaries visit the campus.  Meetings can be arranged with you so that you may learn more about each seminary. 

When Should I Schedule Advising? 

Students who are interested in pursuing a graduate seminary (M.Div.) degree or more general professional training for a church vocation should register with the college Chaplain/Director of Church Relations, John Williams, during their first year to receive one on one mentoring.
