Review Our Program Information
Please look around our web-site to find out as much as possible about us and our students, our program, and Villanova's and our department's services for our students. It is important to us that you consider Villanova a good fit for your academic journey.
Review your Academic Qualification
All applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree from an institution accredited by one of the regional accrediting agencies. In addition, we ordinarily require
(1) eighteen credits in Theology, Religion, or the equivalent; or evidence of 5 years working experience in the fields of Theology or Religion (e.g., ministry, teaching, administration, education); and
(2) a 3.0 (or higher) GPA.
Please review all admission requirements and contact us if you do not meet some of them.
Also, all applicants must have a personal interview with the Coordinator of the Campus Ministry Graduate Internship Program (CMI) who supervises the practicum.
Contact the Director of Graduate Admission and the CMI Coordinator
We heartily invite you to contact our Director of Graduate Admission discuss your unique situation, qualifications, and goals. Also, you are welcome to visit us in person if you live nearby or plan on stopping by in Philadelphia. If you cannot visit in person, you can find detailed information on Villanova's campus and community, as well as the surrounding Philadelphia-area by taking a virtual tour.
Because the program is jointly administered with Villanova's Center for Pastoral Ministry Education, we encourage you to also contact the Campus Ministry Internship Coordinator, who supervises the practicum.
