Field Education Handbook

The Field Education Handbook describes in detail the policies and processes for field education at HDS. Master of divinity (MDiv) students, all other participating students, and supervisors are responsible for knowing and following these policies. Our hope is that this guide will help to instruct all parties on how to build dynamic learning partnerships.

For the most recent HDS policy on sexual and gender-based harassment, view the policy online.
