Supervised Theological Field Education provides a framework for reflection, action, and the integration of learning. It takes a specific context of ministry and focuses on how the application of skills gained and concepts explored during theological studies are now being integrated and applied. Students are required to engage in a pastoral placement, approved by the Director of Field Education, for a minimum of sixteen hours per week for two semesters (the unit must be taken in conjunction with DP 9067W in consecutive semesters).
