Master of Pastoral Ministry: Campus Ministry Concentration

Master of Pastoral Ministry: Campus Ministry Concentration

The Campus Ministry concentration prepares those interested in working with young adults faced with the challenges of high school and college life, as well as the often accompanying questions about faith, values and vocation. Pastoral skills are developed through course work, field education and a capstone project. 

In addition to the core courses, the following courses, plus six credit hours of elective pastoral ministry courses, are required to receive a Master of Pastoral Ministry with a concentration in campus ministry:

RPS 6330. Ministry in the Church: This course explores the contemporary phenomenon of ministry in the Catholic Church from the angles of theology and pastoral practice. Theological exploration focuses on biblical visions of ministry, the history of ministry in the church, and its doctrinal underpinnings and implications, especially in ecclesiology. Pastoral consideration reflects on attitudes, knowledge, and skills necessary for effective pastoral ministry in today's church. Integrating these perspectives, the course includes discussion of issues related to the contemporary ministerial scene and critical ecclesial documents on ministry formation.

RPS 7361. Pastoral Ministry Internship - Campus Ministry: This supervised placement in ministry provides a structured experience of field education. Working with a supervisor you will have a hands-on experience in ministry while developing yourself, your goals, and your understanding of this ministry field.  Students may register for the course more than once.

RPS 7391. Ministry Capstone - Campus Ministry: Students take this course in their final semester. It provides an opportunity for them to integrate previous coursework and reading with the knowledge and skills required to address particular pastoral tasks effectively. The student will work seasoned ministerial practitioners who will provide onsite supervision. Capstone projects require the completion of a detailed application and written approval by School of Ministry faculty supervisors several months prior to registration.
