To participate in this minor students must apply and be admitted. 

Students must have taken or be enrolled in the minor's prerequisite course (MIN 201: Foundations for Theology and Ministry), a 2-credit course offered every spring during the first half of the semester. Applications are due shortly after this course ends. Acceptance decisions are made before fall registration.
