Community Learning Placement (CLP): First-year placement in social justice agencies, non-profits, health care settings and more. Students can choose from urban, suburban and rural opportunities.
Congregational/church Placements: Churches provide our students with valuable experience in preaching and liturgy, pastoral care, Christian education, and church leadership and administration.
Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE): Although not a requirement of the M. Div. program, we strongly encourage our students to pursue Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE), as we believe it is a crucial aspect of ministry in any setting is providing pastoral care.
