Professional ministry as a pastor, rabbi, youth leader, teacher, or parish worker requires that you be aware of everything that touches the lives of people and be especially sensitive to the human hunger for meaning, perspective, and understanding. 

The Pre-Ministry program at UW-Platteville provides preparation for further religious studies in a seminary and the opportunity to partner with a member of the clergy to learn more about the ministry. The pre-ministry program is most often taken with the bachelor’s degree in philosophy.
