Competency Exercises

Competency exercises are required midway through the Master of Divinity (MDiv) and Master of Theological Studies (MTS) degrees. The purpose of a competency exercise is to give the student an opportunity to integrate two (MDiv) or two to three (MTS) subject areas in a way that exhibits a basic level of competence in those subject areas. In the MDiv program the competency exercises focus on an event or series of events that display a coherent pastoral practice or set of practices. A competency exercise in the MTS program may have the same focus or a more academic focus depending on the particular subject areas being integrated. The specifics vary depending on whether the competency exercise is taken within the MDiv program or the MTS program. For details click the links below:
