    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. During your field education in a church or organization, you’ll be mentored by ministry professionals, get real‐world experience, and gain insight into professional ministry. You’ll deepen your classroom learning and improve your ministry practice by reflecting on these experiences. 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.
