Field Education & Placement
Field Education Program (M.Div.)
Westminster Seminary California’s Field Education Program is designed to integrate on-campus studies with part-time ministry in local churches. Field education involves supervised hands-on ministry experience and opportunities for evaluation and reflection with mentors, peers, and professors, in which students are given opportunities to develop the skills and gifts necessary for effective ministry. The Field Education Program at WSC provides an opportunity for Master of Divinity students to gain practical ministry experience to which they can apply the information learned in the classroom. In this way the WSC curriculum seeks to balance intense Christian scholarship with practical ministry.

Employment and Ministerial Placement
Churches from around the country regularly contact Westminster Seminary California regarding open ministerial positions. These opportunities are made available to graduating students and alumni through our campus-wide email list-serv. Members of the local community often advertise part-time employment opportunities for students through the listserv and bulletin board in the Student Lounge.
