The best preparation for a career in the Christian ministry is a four-year liberal arts course preparatory to graduate work at a seminary. Students interested in religious education or missionary work, as well as pre-ministerial students, can also prepare by taking specific courses:
Our pre-professional engineering program, allows you to combine the best aspects of a small college experience with the benefits of a professional engineering degree.

With some of the best-rated jobs in the nation, and five of the top ten highest paying jobs, the computer science field is vibrant, exciting, challenging and growing. There are also many stimulating graduate school opportunities in computer science.
A social science major allows you to teach any course within social studies subjects in any 7-12 school in Nebraska, as well as in most other states. The major, also a teaching endorsement, is comprised of courses including sociology, economics, political science, history, geography and psychology.
Students not seeking to be certified to teach in secondary schools with a social science major generally continue by enrolling in a graduate school program in their area of interest.
Do you want to look inside an atom, visualize the sound of a trumpet, or gaze on a supernova? Do you want to design a rocket engine that sends people into outer space or program a computer to simulate life? These are just a few of the things a physics major might do.
We offer both a physics major and minor. Our curriculum emphasizes doing science, not just learning about science, so all courses give students the opportunity to work on experimental and theoretical projects. Many opportunities also exist to work with faculty on research projects while at Doane.
A special education major helps prepare you for teaching children and youth with mild or moderate mental handicaps, learning disabilities or behavioral disorders. Teachers graduating from this program have certification for teaching kindergarten through 12th grade.
Students may obtain certification in both elementary education and special education. A coaching endorsement may also be added to the teaching majors.
