Graduate degree preparation

It is not surprising that students in the biblical and religious studies major are extremely successful in finding ministry-oriented employment and in gaining admission to prestigious graduate schools, law schools and seminaries, including Evangelical School of Theology, Wesley Theological Seminary, Villanova University, Princeton Theological Seminary, Duke Divinity School, Yale Divinity School, University of Notre Dame, Fuller Seminary, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. In fact, about half of Messiah's BRS graduates go onto graduate school. Others go on to become directors, ministers and teachers, among other influential positions.
