Students select their own field education placements and use the Field Education forms below to register the placement with the Office of Ministry Studies. Each stage of a field education placement requires that Field Education forms are completed in full by the published deadlines, which includes student and supervisor signatures. Students should print each form, fill them out completely, attach written detail when required, and submit the forms in duplicate with signatures.
The Field Education Program deadlines and forms you submit to the Office of Ministry Studies are designed to support and give structure to your learning experience. Students will submit two hard copies of each form. If the student is enrolled in Meaning Making, the student will submit three hard copies of the Learning Agreement. A copy will be forwarded to the Meaning Making instructor.
