Pre-Seminary

There is no specific major that prepares a student for enrollment in a seminary. At Bethany Lutheran College special attention is given to preparing students for admission to Bethany Lutheran Theological Seminary (BLTS). Academically, the applicant to BLTS should have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. He should be a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod or a congregation in fellowship with the ELS. The applicant will have a good working knowledge of Greek and Hebrew. Under ordinary circumstances the applicant will have taken two years of both languages with a “C” or better grade point average in order to meet the language requirement. The applicant, finally, should be a serious student of the Holy Scriptures. He should be well-versed in both the historical and doctrinal content of the Bible.
