Applications for admission into the Internship Program in the Fall of 2021 will be accepted starting August 1, 2020. The priority application deadline is February 1, 2021. After Feb. 1st, applications will be considered on a rolling basis as space permits.
Applicants to both the Certificate and Internship programs begin by completing the Graduate Liberal Arts and Sciences application and selecting either the MA in Ministry and Theology or the Certificate in Pastoral Ministry as their primary or secondary discipline of study.
Applicants must be accepted into a master’s degree program at Villanova before being considered for the certificate or internship programs. Once an applicant is admitted into their academic degree program, they will automatically be entered into the review process for Certificate in Ministry and the Internship programs if these have been indicated in their application.
All application and admission information for the degree and certificate programs in Theology, which include both the M.A. in Ministry and Theology (48 credits), as well as the Certificate in Pastoral Ministry (24 credits), can be found through the Graduate Program in Theology.
If you are applying to the Campus Ministry Internship Program as an applicant to a degree program in another department, then you need to follow the application and admissions requirements established by that department. AND you must also select the Certificate in Pastoral Ministry as a "secondary discipline" on the Graduate Arts and Sciences application.
All applicants to either ministry program will have a preliminary video interview on a rolling basis. Admission decisions will also be made on a rolling basis. Qualified applicants to the Internship program will be invited to have a second, lengthier video interview by no later than mid February. Decisions about the Internship program will be made by March 1st.
