THEO 6930: Graduate Core Practicum (2019-2020)

View all THEO classes

This course ("GCP") is an integral part of the graduate core curriculum and is distinct from, but still closely related to the three triads of "academic" core courses (i.e. Bible I, II, III; Global Christian Heritage I, II, III; and Theology/Ethics I, II, III). Under normal circumstances, each student will take 2 credits of GCP in each of the three quarters of his/her first academic year, for a total of 6 credits. (Permission to take only 1 credit of GCP in a given quarter must be obtained from the Dean of the School of Theology or the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies.) GCP is intended to help students make connections between the "academic" work they are doing in their core courses and the "abbey" and "apostolate" dimensions of their theological formation. Each student will work out an individualized learning contract with the designated Practicum Coordinator that will address vital areas of character, spiritual formation and missional competence. Ordinarily, this contract will require the student to do the following: (1) meet regularly with a mentor approved by the School of Theology; (2) participate in a weekly campus-based spiritual formation group with other students and a designated faculty member; (3) design and execute a project that will integrate what he or she is learning in the "academic" core courses his/her personal spiritual growth and professional development as a minister of the gospel, and (4) submit weekly reflections. May be repeated for credit up to 6 credits.
