MTS Contextual Education Project
Master of Theological Studies students are required to fulfill one semester (4 credits) of contextual education, typically during the second year of this two-year program. This is a new requirement as of academic year 2010-11. Some students may choose to complete this requirement by taking TF 703 and TF 704 ( Practices of Faith).
Others may elect to follow a project proposal process. Students design MTS projects in consultation with advisors and the Office of Contextual Education. The timeline for MTS projects is as follows:
|March 31, 2014||Student proposals due to Office of Contextual Education (Suite 107)|
|April 1, 2014||Contextual Education and Life Long Learning (CELLL) Committee begins review process.|
|April||CELLL Committee convenes to discuss proposals. Both students and their advisors are notified regarding approvals or any necessary modifications. Revision due date deadlines will be determined on individual bases.|
|May 31, 2014||Students with approved proposals for the fall semester register for TF801 in the Spring or the Fall.|
|Fall 2014||Students with approved proposals for the spring semester register for TF801.|
