Students undertake a field placement in a ministry setting. Students negotiate and evaluate the field placement through a Supervised Theological Field Education Coordinator. The Coordinator will facilitate orientation and end of placement review seminars, and individual meetings with students throughout the placement. While on placement students attend regular meetings with an accredited Placement Supervisor and with a field committee as appropriate, and engage in a peer group process for theological reflection.
