Contextual Education (CE) in the M. Div. Program
Contextual Education (CE) is an integral part of the M.Div. curriculum at Eden Theological Seminary. Students have access to a broad range of ministry experiences that provide a practical context for their classroom instruction. CE units are evaluated on a pass/fail system.
Here’s how CE works at Eden:
Six (6) units of CE required for the M.Div. degree:
- Six units: 140 hours per semester, or 10 hours per week for 14 weeks each semester, during year 1, 2, and 3.
An example of how students can complete six units:
Year 1: Two units at a Community Learning Placement (CLP)
Year 2: Two units at a congregational/church setting
Year 3: Two units at a vocational preference setting
