Old and New Testament Pre-Seminary Courses

Concordia Theological Seminary offers two pre-seminary on-line Bible courses. These courses are designed for those planning to attend the seminary as a Master of Divinity or Alternate Route student. In order to fulfill the New Testament Bible and Old Testament Bible pre-seminary requirement, these courses must be taken no more than four years prior to the student's matriculation date in either program.

These courses are also open to those that are interested in furthering their knowledge in the Old and New Testament. These courses could also possibly be transferred into an undergraduate degree program. Prior approval of the receiving institution is recommended.
