Preparing for Religious and Theological Studies School

If you are considering going to school for religious and theological studies, your post-secondary planning process should begin as early as high school. Religious and theological studies institutions and programs can be competitive; therefore, it's important to plan your high school courses accordingly. Some of the classes that you will want to take are English, speech/communications and social science courses to ensure that you are well prepared for the schools and programs that make your list. Languages and creative arts are also beneficial for certain programs in this field.

If you are still in high school, and are thinking about going to school for religious and theological studies, there are several additional things that you can do to prepare and increase your chances of being accepted:

  • Undertake to read and study independently. This is a good way to develop interests, expand your knowledge and improve your vocabulary and reading comprehension skills needed for these intellectually wide-ranging programs. This will also help you if admission requirements include an interview, since you will be able to impress the committee with the knowledge you have built up of terms and concepts specific to this area of study.


  • Admissions committees at religious and theological studies schools are often interested in a student's personal qualities, which can be developed through participating in extracurricular activities. Consider joining or even starting school clubs, whether related to your area of interest or not. This is also a good way to develop demonstrated leadership skills, which are an important aspect of any competitive application.


  • Work experience - paid or volunteer - can also increase your chances of being admitted, particularly to programs involving ministry or outreach components, and is an achievement often regarded highly by admissions committees.


  • Show your commitment and respect. Religious and theological studies are specialized fields involving sometimes sensitive issues of world views, ethics, morals, and personal beliefs. Participation in faith-based or multi-cultural activities will show the admissions committee that you are serious and open-minded to the kinds of issues and questions this field involves.
