Field Education

Welcome to Field Education at Louisville Seminary!

Field Education remains a cornerstone of the Master of Divinity curriculum at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. We believe that deep learning occurs not only through readings and classroom experiences, but also through the very practice of ministry. By doing, reflecting on that doing with peers and mentors, and then going back to do again, we learn more about God, ourselves, and our communities.

Louisville Seminary supports a variety of opportunities to serve in ministry. Congregational placements in churches spanning many denominations are reserved for middler students who have completed several vital introductory courses. If interested, first-year students are able to work in unique agency placements, such as the VA Medical Center, Baptist Health Floyd, Hosparus, nursing homes, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) offices, and more. Other, more intensive full-time experiences, including Clinical Pastoral Education at local Louisville hospitals, summer-time intensives, and year-long internships are also available.

Field Education Director Marcus Hong and Administrative Assistant Laura March are eager to guide you through the joys and challenges (and paperwork!) of Field Education. Come see us on the first floor of Schlegel Hall, offices 103 and 104.

Whether you intend to do an agency placement during your first year or not, ALL incoming MDiv students must make an appointment to meet with Professor Hong. A major part of our work at the Field Ed Office involves getting to know each of you individually, exploring your past leadership experiences, your vision for future ministry, and your personal learning goals.
May God richly bless you in life and ministry! We look forward to meeting you.
