This practicum is designed for persons planning a career in professions that “minister” to the public, e.g., theology majors, social science majors, health professions. In their practicum, students put learned theory to practical application by doing weekly “pastoral” work in places such as parishes, Catholic Social Services, neighborhood centers, campus ministry, and other religious laity work environments. Practicum learning objectives are developed by student and faculty member. Students are required to complete a minimum of 20 hours per week at their practicum site and complete a portfolio culminating the internship.
