Students who wish to attend seminary to prepare for the ministry, priesthood, or rabbinate should take a broad range of courses in the liberal arts and sciences: English courses focusing on literature and creative writing; Philosophy and Religious Studies; History; social and natural sciences. Work in a modern language, such as French, German, or Spanish, is also desirable. Enrollment in at least one course that is designated "community-based-learning" is highly recommended, as is a semester on one of the University's off-campus study programs. Interested students may consult with the University chaplain.
