This is a seminar course, designed to prepare students in the CDSP Low-Residence MDiv program for field education site placements. As a seminar, the course will involve reading, reflection, discussion, and student presentations. This class will help students articulate their learning and ministry goals for field education, develop a plan for entering into a congregational system as a seminarian, and provide a set of tools and models that will serve as the framework for reflection assignments during the placement itself.
