If you think life as a musical theologian, minister, or cardinal sounds interesting, then a degree in theological and ministerial studies may just be for you. You could even become the next Pope!
Theological and ministerial studies is the 134th most popular degree in America, with 2,404 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #135 French Language and Literature, and narrowly lost to #133 Experimental Psychology.
The degree is offered at a total of 249 colleges across the nation, and is the 91st most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 5% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.
It is also worth noting that 0% of colleges offering theological and ministerial studies are public making it a quite inaccessible field.
The southeast produces the most theological and ministerial studies graduates, largely led by Southeastern University, while it’s the The Sun Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Florida ranks highest, with particular help from Palm Beach Atlantic University and Southeastern University.
All that being said, no individual school produces more theological and ministerial studies graduates than Amridge University, which graduated 193 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study theological and ministerial studies). More students studied theological and ministerial studies as a percentage of total students at Yeshivath Viznitz than any other college.
