You have a calling to serve
Christ and His church


The pre-seminary program is designed with flexibility to allow you to meet the entrance requirements of the seminary of your choice.

Most seminaries require a strong liberal arts education and a background in Greek and in a modern foreign language. As a pre-seminary student, you will select a major in one or more of the following areas of study: history, English, philosophy, communication arts, psychology, or sociology. It is also important that you give serious attention to language studies.

With a Trinity education, you will discover and put into practice what it means to serve Christ and His church. At Trinity, you will have opportunities to learn, grow, and prepare for kingdom work. The small class sizes, access to a wide variety of churches and parachurch organizations, and an active campus ministry program provide an exciting environment for exploring God’s Word.

The field education course, taken in your senior year, offers practical ways to apply your knowledge and skills. Trinity theology students serve churches and other Christian agencies in a variety of capacities. The diversity of communities in the Chicago area allows students to seek experience in a wide range of settings.
