The Hidden Curriculum of Seminary Education

Author: Perry Shaw

Key Words: Curriculum, learning

This article argues that the impact of the hidden curriculum found in most forms of seminary education is profoundly negative. The prevalent methods and structures used in most theological education—including missiological education—subtly undermine the content and intent of our schools, producing graduates who are often ill-equipped for their subsequent roles in church and society. Theological education can only be effective when the hidden curriculum receives as much attention as the explicit curriculum, when it is intentionally designed rather than unintentionally accepted. The article concludes with twenty-five practical ways in which the hidden curriculum can become a positive holistic learning experience. First published in JAM 8:1-2 (2006):23-51
