College of Ministry Internship: Senior Project
The final part of four 3-credit courses that make up the College of Ministry Internship requirement. An internship is an experiential learning opportunity. The College of Ministry student is required to complete a total of 12 credits of internship experience. The 12 credits are divided into four 3-credit courses which may be taken concurrently in one semester (Fall, Spring, or Summer), grouped equally as two 6-credit semesters, or taken over four consecutive semesters. The student will commit to participate with an experienced professional or organization in their chosen field of church ministry, service, or community leadership. The Senior Project is a culminating, synthetic learning experience in which students apply the learning gained in the General Education Core, the Biblical Studies Core, the major program core, and their internship experience to a study project in their major. The Senior Project is designed to meet the unique and particular needs of the student's major and internship context. The final assignment can take the form of a research project, forum, group study, or any other format approved and considered appropriate by the Senior Project advisor. Specific requirements are listed in the course syllabus.
