Contemporary life is a source of theology as well as the milieu of ministry. The field education program provides an initial joining of service with theological reflection. 

To facilitate personal integration of the theological studies, the field education program consists of
 

1.

internships in parishes, hospitals and social agencies; 

2.

regular individual supervision with a competent authority at this place of work; and 

3.

weekly seminars at the University in which students analyze case studies based on their work and discuss issues of importance relative to active ministry in the church today. This threefold process unites with the students’ concurrent studies in Scripture, history and systematic theology to enable them to develop a professional identity in ministry.
