Spiritual Vocations Internship Program

This internship program offers guidance and experience in directing students toward vocational opportunities that draw on theological backgrounds, such as social work, social justice legal work, and non-profit organizations and faith communities. Available each semester through application process. Contact College Chaplain Jeff McArn.

Applicants are required to locate an internship situation in a local faith community or non-profit with a faith component. Mentors must be approved by the chaplaincy. Stipends are available for up to 5 hours per week at the placement, and one hour per week of joint reflection time with all student members of the program. All placements are one semester long. Students may apply to extend their placements for an additional semester if desired.
