Beyond the Classroom

In your second year, you’ll start a practicum of 5 ‐ 6 hours per week. Then, before the final year of your program, you’ll do a 3 ‐ 12 month full‐time internship. In your final year, you’ll have a chance to reflect on what you learned during your time in the field. Through hands‐on experience in a church or organization, you’ll be mentored and gain insight into the world of professional ministry. As you reflect on your work in the field, you’ll deepen your classroom learning and improve your ministry practice. Please note, you will need to produce the results of a Criminal Record Check before you will be permitted to participate in practicum or internship experiences associated with the program.
