Hybrid Field Education – Clinical Pastoral Education (FE-CPE) Program

Launched in collaboration with the Jewish Theological Seminary’s Center for Pastoral Education, the Hybrid Field Education – Clinical Pastoral Education (FE-CPE) program provides participating M.Div. students with the opportunity to earn at least one-unit of CPE without doing a summer intensive.

Each year, eight (8) M.Div. students enrolled in Field Education coursework are chosen to participate in the FE-CPE. At the successful completion of the program, students receive both 6 Field Education credits and one unit of CPE. This is a rigorous program, accredited by ACPE as a satellite site of Jewish Theological Seminary, and supervised by an accredited ACPE supervisor. This program is fully integrated into the FE courses.

Applications for FE-CPE are reviewed on a rolling basis.
