Unit Description

This unit is an exploratory internship which is usually undertaken in the first or second year of studies. The internship allows students to explore ministry or vocational opportunities and work settings. This internship may assist a student in the discovery of interests, transferable skills, values, and other key components important in the choice of major or vocational direction.

Students are supervised by an academic at the College and a supervisor in the vocation or ministry context. The internship will normally involve: 8-10 hours per week at the internship site; maintaining a journal; regular meetings with site supervisor and academic in charge; and completion of an internship evaluation. Academics meet with student on regular basis, help the student determine goals and learning outcomes for the internship, read and comment on the student’s journal on a regular basis, and maintain contact with the site supervisor.
