Other Curricular Considerations

Supervised Ministries

The programs in supervised ministries help students gain professional competence, build frameworks for addressing practical theological issues, acquire more comprehensive and realistic views of the Church and ministry (broadly conceived), and develop professional ministerial identities. While supervised ministry is a requirement of the M.Div. program, it is open to all Yale Divinity School students in degree programs. The eight-hour Negotiating Boundaries in Ministerial Relationships workshop, required of all M.Div. students, is a prerequisite for supervised ministry. It is typically offered three times during the academic year. For more information about requirements and policies regarding supervised ministries, please consult Office of Supervised Ministries (OSM) literature or Web page.

Students may participate in one or more of the following programs. Completion of one is required for the M.Div. degree. These programs carry elective credits that do not apply toward Area IV. Only fifteen credits may be applied toward the M.Div. degree through supervised ministry (including CPE).

Eligible students receive a stipend for supervised ministry through the Office of Finance and Administration.

Programs Offered by Yale Divinity School

Part-Time Internship with Practicum (3 Credits per Term)

The part-time internship is taken for two consecutive terms starting in September. Internship sites include churches, social service and social change agencies, campuses, and other institutions. The internship, under the mentorship of a trained supervisor, is combined with a peer reflection group (Practicum) taught by a practitioner, for a total of approximately fifteen hours a week. The Part-Time Internship with Practicum carries three credits each term. Both terms must be completed to meet the graduation requirement. Successful completion of Negotiating Boundaries is a prerequisite. Placements are selected during the spring term.

Part-Time Internship with Advanced Practicum (3 Credits per Term)

This program is open to students returning for a second supervised ministry internship. The second internship can be arranged as a second year at the same site or at a different site to provide another type of contextual experience. In addition to performing typical internship responsibilities, each intern creates a unique but replicable major project. Projects involve substantive research and are presented to other students in the advanced practicum. The Part-Time Internship with Advanced Practicum carries three credits each term. Completion of both terms is required before credit is granted. Successful completion of one supervised ministry internship is a prerequisite.

Summer Intensive Internship with Practicum (Summer: 6 Credits)

This internship program is similar to the Part-Time Internship with Practicum except that it involves full-time ministry totaling four hundred hours during the summer. Approved sites will maintain an active program schedule during the summer months. Summer Intensive Internships include three days of training and a weekly peer-group Practicum at Yale Divinity School. Students serving internships out-of-state will participate virtually in their Practicum via the Internet.

Programs Offered by Other Educational Institutions–Transfer Credit

Students may transfer supervised ministry/field education credit from other educational institutions as long as the program includes the following:

  • 1. Training by theologically educated instructors;
  • 2. A minimum of four hundred hours of work;
  • 3. Supervision by a mentor with an M.Div. and/or ordination;
  • 4. A peer reflection group.

Examples of qualified programs include:

Clinical Pastoral Education (6 credits) CPE is offered by the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education. One unit of CPE, which can be taken during a summer or an academic year, fulfills the supervised ministry requirement. CPE sites include hospitals, hospices, geriatric care facilities, and occasionally community organizations and churches. CPE brings students into supervised encounters with persons in crisis. It provides an in-depth pastoral experience with individual and group supervision by certified teaching chaplains. Each program has its own application procedure, schedule, and policies. Students preparing for ministry are strongly encouraged to take CPE. Eligible students may receive a stipend through the Office of Finance and Administration.

Interfaith Worker Justice (IWJ) Summer Program (3 credits) A ten-week summer internship program for college students and seminarians sponsored by Interfaith Worker Justice and the AFL-CIO. Interns attend a weeklong training period on religion and labor organizing and then work directly with labor unions and other labor organizations to engage the religious community in workplace issues. Interns meet with a mentor for theological reflection. Stipends are provided to help with costs.

Seminary Consortium for Urban Pastoral Education Summer Program (3 credits) SCUPE is offered by a consortium of a dozen theological schools located in Chicago. SCUPE programs educate individuals from all backgrounds as effective change agents in urban communities. Utilizing the educational and training theories of adult experiential education, SCUPE programs are designed for individuals interested in pastoral ministry, community leadership, and social justice. These programs provide leadership development through hands-on urban ministry experience. The SCUPE summer program, when it is offered, consists of an introductory two-week intensive course called Cross Cultural Ministry followed by a nine-week full-time internship with a peer group practicum. Interns are placed in Chicago churches and community organizations.Housing and financial support are generally available. The program is not offered every summer.

Intern Year

YDS does not offer Supervised Ministries credit or academic credit for an intern year unless that year of study is formally supervised and credited by another seminary. However, students who wish to maintain their student status at Yale while participating in an intern year may do so by making an application to the Professional Studies Committee, explaining how the intern year fits into their educational goals. If the committee approves the intern year, then students will be allowed to complete a technical registration that will allow the student to continue his or her current student status at Yale and to continue to use Yale e-mail. Because the student status continues, the individual will not need to start repaying student loans, and will not have to reapply for admission to YDS at the end of the intern year. Upon completion of the intern year, students are expected to supply the Professional Studies Committee with a brief written evaluation of the intern year.

Ministry Studies Support

YDS enables women and men to prepare for the lay or ordained ministries of Christian churches. As part of that preparation, YDS offers a ministry studies support program to each Master of Divinity degree student. The program accommodates the student’s needs and expectations for the degree, and Yale’s requirements. Support for ministry studies within the context of the degree includes the help of academic advisers, the assistant dean for ministerial studies, and the Berkeley Divinity School director of studies.

The M.Div. is a professional degree, required by many Christian denominations for ordained ministry. Utilizing the YDS faculty and student body as well as the gifts of the broader Yale University academic community, M.Div. students engage in a three-year program of intellectual discovery and personal formation. The M.Div. degree, when a part of an intentional plan for study, prepares students for their denominational ordination process, in a program that is theologically informed, professionally competent, academically rigorous, and oriented to the life of the church. Yale offers the context and support for this journey of the mind and spirit, providing all of the course work required for most denominational ordination requirements, as well as a broad system of support in the midst of this process. The degree also prepares students who are not ordination-bound for a wide range of careers in professional ministry and church service. Assessment of progress is offered throughout the academic program so that students in the M.Div. program can move forward, with broad institutional support, into the ministries that are most appropriate for their interests, their gifts, their hopes.

In addition to academic work, ministry studies include possibilities for regular worship with the YDS community at Marquand Chapel, at Berkeley Center, and in a wide range of denominational and other settings. The Annand Program for Spiritual Formation, sponsored by Berkeley Divinity School and open to all students, encourages learning the fundamentals of prayer and Christian discipleship from seasoned clergy and lay teachers. The Supervised Ministries programs offer rich opportunities for professional growth within congregational ministry and non-parish settings.

In all aspects of ministry studies, consideration of issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality, and the broad scope of social justice concerns are of central importance.

The Annand Program for Spiritual Formation

A gift from the Berkeley Divinity School to the wider YDS community, this endowed program prepares students for lay and ordained ministry through the integration of spiritual and intellectual life. Annand programs are intended to foster personal spiritual formation, provide experience with a variety of spiritual disciplines, and offer students a broad view on trends in spiritual expression. First-year students are invited to participate in small groups designed especially to support spiritual growth while making the transition to Divinity School life. The Annand Program also offers individual and group spiritual direction, quiet days, workshops, and a variety of small group programs. Open to all YDS students, the Annand Program can be an especially helpful resource for M.Div. students in fulfilling spiritual growth and formation expectations for their portfolio. For more information, please call Berkeley Divinity School at Yale, 203.432.9285, or e-mail annand@yale.edu.

Educational Leadership and Ministry Program

This program seeks to prepare students of all denominations for leadership and ministry in schools and colleges.

Sponsored by Berkeley Divinity School, ELM focuses on equipping leaders to serve as ordained and lay chaplains, administrators, and teachers of religion in a variety of schools. It addresses some of the factors involved in the spiritual and moral formation of primary and secondary school students. It provides insight into the roles and responsibilities of those who hold other leadership positions in schools. The program also seeks to help future leaders understand and prepare for various types of chaplaincy at universities and colleges.

The ELM Program can lead to the granting of a Certificate in Educational Leadership and Ministry by Berkeley Divinity School. To receive the certificate, students must successfully complete at least two of the program’s three core courses: REL 811, Models and Methods of College and University Chaplaincy; REL 848, Leadership Ministry in Schools; and REL 875, Seminar: Advanced Topics in Leadership Ministry in Schools and Colleges. These three courses deal with issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality through readings, case studies, and discussions. In addition, students must successfully complete REL 812, Principles and Practice of Preaching, plus two additional electives in related fields (one elective if all three core courses above are taken) approved by the director of the Educational Leadership and Ministry Program. Students must also do a supervised ministry or internship, approved by the director, in a school, college, or other educational institution. They are also required to participate in at least one field trip to an educational institution in addition to the trips required in their courses.

Ministry Resource Center

The center focuses on the practice of ministry and provides resources to faculty, students, graduates, and congregations for those ministries. The center provides consultation and training related to social service agencies and ministries of congregations, the use of resources, and program planning. It provides a media library of DVDs, CDs, and print resources on the practice of ministry ranging from social issues to congregational care to curriculum resources. The center supports students in internships in the community by providing program resources, planning assistance, and training. The Ministry Resource Center works to expand visions and meet faith needs through the life of congregations.

Denominational Preparation

Instruction in denominational history and polity is offered in Area II of the curriculum and as an integral part of the work in a variety of courses. Each student is urged to consult with the proper denominational authorities at the outset, and to keep them informed, with regard to particular denominational requirements for ordination. Students should be aware that most denominations require specific courses in history and polity.

The Episcopal Church

As a seminary of the Episcopal Church, Berkeley Divinity School at Yale is characterized by its unique setting within YDS, commitment to academic excellence, and vibrant community life. When Episcopal students come to Yale to prepare for vocations in the lay and ordained ministries, they come to one of the world’s premier centers of theological learning.

At the same time, through Berkeley students participate in a focused community of worship and formation steeped in the Anglican tradition. Founded in 1854 to be a mediating seminary during a time of theological division in the Episcopal Church, Berkeley historically has been open to the spectrum of worship practices and theological perspectives within Anglicanism. It has found its unity in a rich sacramental and community life, as well as a shared commitment to rigorous intellectual engagement with the Christian tradition. Since its affiliation with Yale in 1971, Berkeley Divinity School has retained an independent board of trustees and dean, but its students are fully enrolled in Yale. Just as it funds faculty and lectures at YDS, Berkeley offers scholarship support to students through YDS.

Upon graduation, students receive, in addition to their Yale degree, a Diploma or Certificate in Anglican Studies from Berkeley, which oversees their Anglican formation. The Diploma in Anglican Studies includes courses in the seven canonical areas, a three-year colloquium series on leadership, involvement in the Annand Program for Spiritual Formation, and regular attendance at chapel services. Seminars, workshops, and class retreats focus on the acquisition of professional skills for the practice of ministry. Requirements for the diploma and certificate are listed in the BDS Advising Customary. In addition, the Berkeley Rule of Life outlines expectations for students’ spiritual formation, participation in community life, and personal integrity.

All M.Div. students must complete a year of supervised ministry in a parish or social service ministry, or a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education. Most dioceses of the Episcopal Church require for ordination both a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education and one or two years of supervised parish internship.

Morning and evening worship is held daily in St. Luke’s Chapel, and Wednesday evenings the whole community gathers for a special service of Holy Eucharist. The Berkeley Center, located one block from the YDS campus, functions as a center of hospitality and community where Berkeley students, faculty, and staff congregate for worship, events, and informal conversation.

All admissions are administered and considered through either YDS or the Institute of Sacred Music. Applicants interested in pursuing the program at Berkeley Divinity School should use one of these applications for admission, indicating their desire to enroll in the Anglican Studies Program. For further information on the Berkeley Divinity School and its program, please contact the Director of Studies, Berkeley Divinity School, 409 Prospect Street, New Haven CT 06511, telephone 203.432.9285, or visit the Web site at www.yale.edu/berkeleydivinity.

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

Lutheran students are reminded that all candidates for ordination in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America must register with their synod’s candidacy committee. Candidates are expected to affiliate with a Lutheran seminary and to plan a yearlong, full-time internship as part of their seminary career. Arrangements for internships are made through the Lutheran seminary with which the candidate is affiliated; arrangements for field placements in Lutheran churches are made through the Office of Supervised Ministries.

Candidates for ordination enrolled at non-Lutheran seminaries are normally required to spend a year in residence at a Lutheran seminary. Candidates often meet this requirement by spending a fourth year at a Lutheran seminary after completing their program of study at Yale. Alternately, YDS has established a partnership with the Eastern Cluster of Lutheran Seminaries (Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, and Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary) that permits students enrolled at Yale to take up to two terms at an Eastern Cluster school as part of their Yale program.

The Lutheran Studies Program at Yale is designed to support candidates for ordination in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The program has two components: activities supporting formation for ministry and a course of studies adopted by the Oversight Committee. Those participating in the formation for ministry component qualify for a Certificate in Lutheran Studies. Those participating in both components qualify for the Diploma in Lutheran Studies. For information about the program, contact the director of the Lutheran Studies Program, Paul F. Stuehrenberg.

United Methodist Church

United Methodists should keep in mind the ruling of the General Conference that candidates for both deacon and elder orders in an Annual Conference must include in their graduate theological studies the areas of Old Testament, New Testament, theology, church history, mission of the church in the world, evangelism, worship/liturgy, and United Methodist doctrine, polity, and history. The specific requirement for United Methodist doctrine, polity, and history is the equivalent of two credit hours in each of the fields. This requirement may be met by successful completion of REL 691a and REL 696a when taken in sequence. Annual Conferences may have additional requirements for ordination beyond those specified in The Book of Discipline of the United Methodist Church. Many Annual Conferences require both a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education and one or two years of supervised ministry. Students should be in touch early in their seminary career with their Board of Ordained Ministry to determine specific requirements.

Candidates for ordination are reminded that they should contact their District Superintendent and District Committee on Ordained Ministry to begin the candidacy process as described in The Book of Discipline. It is advisable to begin this process early in the seminary experience. Courtesy mentoring for candidates is sometimes possible through the Connecticut District of the New York Annual Conference.

Methodist Studies Certificate

YDS offers a Certificate Program in Methodist Studies. The objectives of this program are to create a Methodist ethos in which students can receive the courses and formation needed to prepare for ministry, to provide academic inquiry into the Wesleyan tradition with special attention to United Methodist as well as pan Methodist identities, and to create a community of students on campus who identify with the Methodist tradition. Students in the Master of Divinity Program interested in the Methodist Studies Program are primarily those seeking ordination as deacons or elders in denominations rooted in the Wesleyan tradition such as the United Methodist, the Korean Methodist, the African Methodist Episcopal (AME), and African Methodist Episcopal Zion (AME Zion). Other degree students are also welcome. Requirements for certification include completion of courses necessary for ordination, two colloquies each term, and active participation in the Methodist Society at YDS.

The Methodist Society is an informal group of students and faculty that meets throughout the academic year. Activities include special worship occasions, lunch discussions on important United Methodist issues, and other opportunities for fellowship. Chapel services with a Methodist emphasis are conducted several times a year.

Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

The M.Div. program provides the course work needed to fulfill most requirements for ordination in the PCUSA. Presbyterian students should contact their Presbytery’s Committee on Preparation for Ministry to enroll as an inquirer. Chapter 2 in the PCUSA Book of Order explains the process and the requirements for ordination. Students should take the Presbyterian Polity course in the fall of their second or third year, before scheduling their ordination exams in Polity and Worship and Sacraments. At least one course in Reformed Theology should be taken before the ordination examination in Theology. Ordination-bound students are required to take Greek and Hebrew languages and exegesis. The Biblical Exegesis exam requires competency in Biblical Hebrew or Greek. Presbyterian students who wish to receive a certificate in Reformed Studies must also complete the requirements for that program.

Reformed Studies Certificate

Students may complete a Certificate in Reformed Studies at YDS. Drawing on the considerable resources of those faculty members who identify themselves with the tradition, and the students from the PCUSA, UCC, RCA, PCA, CRC, and Disciples of Christ, YDS has formed a broad-based community of people committed to exploring the historical and contemporary issues facing the Reformed churches. The purpose of the certificate is to demonstrate to presbyteries and other denominational bodies that while at YDS students in the Reformed tradition are offered the courses and formation needed for ministerial preparation; to answer students’ request for a greater knowledge and awareness of what it is to be a part of that Reformed tradition; and to build community among those on campus who identify with the Reformed tradition. In addition to the courses required for completion of the certificate, students need to be aware of the specific requirements of their denominations, including, for instance, the requirements in biblical languages of the PCUSA. Students interested in enrolling in the certificate should contact Professor Bruce Gordon.

Roman Catholic Church

Over the past three decades the number of Roman Catholic faculty and students at YDS has flourished. Since the majority of these students are members of the laity who cannot at the present time become candidates for ordination in the Catholic Church, no formal programs for priestly formation currently exist at YDS. However, many Catholic students at YDS are enrolled in the M.Div. program and are preparing to serve as lay ecclesial ministers in the Catholic Church.

In order to provide a formative experience for these students, the YDS Catholic community has been established as an informal body of students, staff, and faculty who gather throughout the academic year for worship, meals, and lectures. Mass is celebrated regularly on the YDS campus, followed by refreshments and socializing with fellow students and Catholic members of the faculty and staff. Once a month, the liturgy is followed by a dinner and a lecture offered by a Catholic individual involved in academic, ecclesial, or ministerial work. Throughout the year different activities, such as small prayer groups or volunteer groups committed to working in poor areas of New Haven, develop according to the interests and needs of the students. Opportunities for supervised ministry and formation experience are also available through the St. Thomas More Catholic Chaplaincy at Yale. The variety of denominations and traditions represented at YDS allows the students a rich opportunity to participate in ecumenical dialogue and worship in addition to their studies. The Annand Program of Berkeley Divinity School provides opportunities for spiritual direction in which Roman Catholics regularly participate. Each of the programs in which the Catholic community engages is intended to deepen the students’ awareness of the ways in which they can serve the church through education, parish ministry, and pastoral care, while also cultivating friendships and support among themselves and the broader YDS community.

Interdisciplinary Study

Interdisciplinary study may be undertaken by YDS students in two ways: by taking courses elsewhere to be credited to a single degree, Master of Arts in Religion (M.A.R.) or Master of Divinity (M.Div.), or by pursuing, concurrent with a YDS degree, a program leading to a second degree, granted by Yale or another university.

Return to Top

Joint-Degree Programs

YDS encourages its students to pursue concurrent degree programs that lead to the receipt of more than one degree when such programs constitute a coherent and well-defined preparation for ministry. Currently YDS has joint-degree programs with the Schools of Social Work of the University of Connecticut and Yeshiva University.

Students may work simultaneously toward a YDS degree and a degree in another school or department of Yale University or other approved graduate program. Currently YDS has agreements for joint-degree programs with the Yale schools of Forestry & Environmental Studies, Law, Management, Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health. Students interested in pursuing any of these programs can get further information from the associate dean of academic affairs.

In all cases where concurrent degrees are sought, admission to the school or department must be obtained through the normal admissions processes established by each school. In most cases, the period of study required to complete two degrees is less (usually by one year) than would be required to complete those degrees if they were pursued independently. The administrative officers of the schools concerned arrange assessment of tuition and other fees.

YDS has established the following policies for joint-degree programs:

  • 1. Each YDS student who undertakes joint-degree work must secure a faculty adviser in YDS who will supervise such work.
  • 2. The student will submit to the faculty adviser and to the director of studies a program draft containing the following information:
  • a. The student’s reasons for undertaking joint-degree work.
  • b. A description of how the student’s expectations are to be met in the other program.
  • c. A designation of someone in the other program who may serve as a contact for the YDS adviser.
  • 3. The faculty adviser will review the student’s progress periodically through contact both with the student and with the designated person in the other program.

Students interested in enrolling in a joint-degree program should notify the registrar and consult the associate dean of academic affairs for further information.

Joint Master of Social Work Degree

YDS students may apply for a joint M.S.W. degree through the University of Connecticut’s School of Social Work or the Wurzweiler School of Social Work at Yeshiva University. Candidates for the joint-degree program may be eligible to count up to the equivalent of one term’s credit hours at the other school to satisfy course work in each program. In most cases, the period of study required to complete the two degrees is less (usually by one year) than would be required to complete those degrees if they were pursued independently. Field education/supervised ministry may be coordinated between the two programs. Students interested in pursuing a joint M.Div./M.S.W. are encouraged to apply to both programs at the start of the application period in the fall. For more information on the joint program, please contact the YDS Admissions Office and visit our partners’ Web sites at www.ssw.uconn.edu or www.yu.edu/wurzweiler.

Studies for Hartford Seminary Students

Students who are enrolled in the M.A. program at Hartford Seminary are eligible to apply for the M.Div. program at Yale as part of a cooperative agreement between the schools.

Students admitted through this program may transfer up to half of their M.Div. requirements (thirty-six hours) from Hartford Seminary.

Applicants must be endorsed by the Hartford Seminary faculty and admitted to YDS through the YDS Admissions Committee. Once admitted and enrolled, students must coordinate their Yale course schedules under the guidance of the associate dean of academic affairs.

Interested Hartford students should contact Uriah Kim at Hartford Seminary.

Interdepartmental Studies

YDS offers opportunities for study in other schools and departments of Yale University. Divinity students are eligible to enroll in graduate or professional school courses, within the context of their M.Div. or M.A.R. programs, and are encouraged to do so, as long as they meet the general prerequisites for the course as prescribed by its instructor and with the instructor’s written permission. At the time of registration for a fourth course in the same school or department, the student’s program of study comes under review by the Professional Studies Committee.

Work taken elsewhere at the graduate or professional school level may be credited toward YDS degrees as long as the student meets the normal distributional requirements. These courses are governed by the regulations for the transfer of credit (see Transfer of Credit, in chapter on Standards and Requirements).

In every case, at least half of each term’s work must be taken in YDS, and the courses taken outside YDS must be clearly relevant to the student’s professional or vocational goals.

Return to Top

Foreign Language Study

For M.Div. and M.A.R. students, degree credit may be received for any foreign language study beyond the elementary level. Degree credit may be received for elementary-level language study only if:

  • 1. The language is necessary for reading original texts of the Judeo-Christian tradition, or
  • 2. The language study is required for the degree (as in the case of several concentrated M.A.R. degrees), or
  • 3. In consultation with the student’s adviser and the academic dean, the language is deemed necessary to the pursuit of a specified course of ministerial or other professional development.

For students in the comprehensive M.A.R. program or the M.Div. program, elementary-level language study can receive elective credit only. For students in a concentrated M.A.R. program, distribution will be determined in consultation with the student’s adviser. Normally, the limit for elementary-level languages will be twelve hours, and further credit will be given only for intermediate-level languages. The courses French for Reading and German for Reading are not eligible for elective credit.

Normally, elementary-level foreign language study will not be credited toward S.T.M. degree requirements. Such courses can, however, be recorded on student transcripts.

Return to Top

Reading Courses

Reading courses may be arranged on materials, subjects, and concerns not included in the courses being offered, or may have a narrower focus than those courses. Reading courses require at least the same amount of work as other courses. They may normally not be taken during a student’s first year in YDS. Exceptions are made for S.T.M. students and may be made for M.A.R. students who have done exceptional work in their first term. Only one reading course may be taken in any term or (for part-time students) any block of four consecutive courses. Reading courses may count toward distributional requirements across areas of the curriculum but may not be counted as fulfilling particular requirements within the area. Only full-time faculty at Yale University may offer reading courses.

A student desiring to work with a faculty member on a reading course will submit to the instructor a written proposal on a form provided by the registrar’s office which includes the following: a brief description of the topic or area of interest, a tentative bibliography, an indication of the way in which the work will be evaluated, and a suggested schedule of meetings with the instructor. After the instructor approves the proposal, it will be submitted to the academic dean for review prior to course registration. No reading course may be approved for any course currently available in the YDS curriculum.

Students on probation or otherwise in academic difficulty may not take reading courses. Reading courses will normally not be approved after the date specified in the academic calendar.

Students with Disabilities

The faculty and staff of YDS make every reasonable effort to facilitate the learning of students capable of graduate-level seminary work. Any student who has a condition that may prevent full demonstration of her or his abilities should contact the Resource Office on Disabilities to request disability-related accommodation or service. Students should also contact their teachers to discuss learning needs and accommodations to ensure the students’ full participation and evaluation in their courses.
