The EM department is unique in preparing students for full-time ministry because we have the opportunity to have experiential learning such as interactive class periods, field studies, an internship, and endless ministry opportunities both right on campus and in the Dubuque community. Being a part of the EM department has helped me gain a better perspective of where God is calling me to serve for him in the youth around me.

It is our purpose that students are adequately prepared for productive, innovative, and Christ-centered ministry to adolescents and their families in a variety of professional and ministry contexts.
There are a variety of ministry opportunities for each discipline. In regards to Youth Ministry, graduates may choose to serve as Youth Directors in a Church, Bible/Worldview Teachers in Christian Schools, Directors for Para-Church Ministries (i.e. Young Life), and Youth Leaders in overseas, urban and military settings or a variety of Staff positions in a Camp context.
The Camping Ministries major primarily prepares graduates to serve as Executive Directors in a Christian Camping setting. Graduates will also be qualified to serve in most all other typical positions in a camp context as well.
