MAPM Pre-Doctoral

Concentration

Students who are interested in entering the Doctor of Ministry program at ETS who have a master’s degree other than a Master of Divinity may complete an MAPM Pre-doctoral concentration designed to address prerequisites for entry into the D.Min. program. Students in this concentration must be admitted to the MAPM program. Each Pre-doctoral MAPM student will complete a specific plan of study approved by the directors of the D.Min. and MAPM programs and the Academic Dean. While “advanced standing” may be granted based on previous graduate study, this concentration will require that a minimum of 16 credits be taken at ETS.

Field Education for the MAPM Program

FE 7001, 7002 Field Education.  Toward the middle of your program, you will engage in Field Education (FE). This is the seminary’s internship requirement that provides an opportunity for you to engage in experience-based learning in a supervised ministerial setting. A concurrent seminar will assist you with placement and offer guidelines for completing this ministry experience. For the Traditional Ecumenical MAPM Track this is a two-quarter sequence in the Fall and Winter quarters (followed by the Final Project in the Spring quarter).   8 quarter hrs.

 

All students must contact the Field Education director, Rev. Dr. Tony Curtis Henderson at (thenderson@etseminary.edu) by March 15 of the year you plan to begin Field Education in the Fall so that he can work with you in locating an acceptable field placement. A suitable church (or other ministry site), supervisor, and lay team must be found and trained, and preliminary planning meeting held – all of which may take months to prepare before your FE experience can begin.

 

Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) or an Internship in Spiritual Direction are ways of fulfilling part of the Field Education requirement. These experiences still require your participation in the Field Education seminars. Please contact the Field Education Supervisor or your Academic Advisor for approval.
