Advanced Professional Practice

Advanced Professional Practice builds on Professional Practice. It provides a chance for students to continue the challenging but rewarding combination of academic reflection upon contemporary ministerial issues and hands-on experience.
Like Professional Practice, you will work with an experienced supervisory mentor (no family members or close friends!), complete a 100 hour placement over the course of semester, with a variety of formats to choose from.
