Field Education

Field Education

The Field Education program consists of three learning components all designed to assist students in integrating classroom education with aspects of ministry: Ministry in Practice, Supervised Clinical Ministry-CPE, and Internship. Ministry in Practice and Internship each has a course connected with it, taught by an interdisciplinary faculty team. All three components are required for the Master of Divinity degree program. Ministry in Practice is required for both concentrations in the Master of Arts in Ministerial Studies; Supervised Clinical Ministry is required for the Christian Education concentration and recommended for the Diaconal Ministry concentration. A form of focused supervised field service is required for the Diaconal Ministry track. There are no field education requirements for the Master of Arts in Religion degree program. Participation in field education programs in congregational settings requires approval of the appropriate church judicatory.
