Abstract
This project is a study of intern supervision in the context of a full-year penultimate internship program at a Lutheran seminary. The reflective method of Whitehead and Whitehead in their book, "Method in Ministry," provides the format and structure for the work. In the chapter dealing with tradition, the author portrays the history and development of internship among North American Lutheran theological educators. Under culture, the theory of cognitive dissonance and a systemic method of pastoral care are related to internship supervision. Under experience, the author probes his own history of field education supervision. The study results in several suggestions for field education programs and identifies significant trends in seminary field education programs.
