A distinctive part of the Highlands College education is our ministry training program which consists of leadership classes focused specifically on ministry and extensive hands-on ministry training in one of eight specific practicums.

The Creative, Technical Arts, and Worship Leadership Practicums require an additional application for admission into the Practicum following admission to Highlands College. Once accepted, please complete you practicum application from within your Application Dashboard. To start new applications, select the option ‘Traditional Program Applicants.’
