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.
