Contextual Studies

Interested in Hosting an Intern?

Setting application to host
the basic internship in a congregation
Setting application to host an advanced internship or an internship outside of a congregation

The placement process begins almost a year ahead of time--in October or November for internships beginning the following September. There is no guarantee of an intern for a given school year. Interested congregations fill out a setting application, while students fill out a brief student profile. Churches are given an opportunity to review student profiles and interview potential interns. When both the church representative and the student agree there is a good match between the student’s goals and the church’s resources, they enter into an agreement with one another and the seminary to fulfill the requirements of the internship.

Student Internships

Ministry internships for United students are associated with courses in contextual studies and one of the interdisciplinary seminars. All M.Div. and M.A.R.L. students serve quarter-time in basic congregational internships during the same year they are enrolled in CS251/CS252 Religious Leadership, Organization, Administration & Finance in Context I & II. One of the prerequisites for this course is IS152 Integration of Ministry and Local Theologies, which includes a mini-internship in urban ministry.

Additionally, M.Div. students will take either CS253 Ministry Practicum or CS254 CPE Ministry Practicum--both of which involve internships. See the course descriptions for further information about these courses. The links below provide further information and forms for facilitating the internships for the respective courses.
