The School of Theology and Religious Studies facilitates student internships with a variety of Washington DC organizations in order to augment our students’ educational experience with experience outside the classroom.
A 6-8 hour / week internship is the culmination of our Certificate in Pastoral Ministry students’ formation. Students intern at one of our approved sites with extensive support and supervision. Our CPM students are also able to integrate their practical experience with their theological studies through a weekly theological reflection with other CPM students.
The School of Theology and Religious Studies also assists interested non-CPM students in finding internships.
Our student have interned for organizations such as the Unites States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Gonzaga Prep High School, and the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry.
