Internships and Careers
In addition to offering an exceptional interdisciplinary curriculum that fully integrates with all majors and minors, the Department of Catholic Studies also helps students gain real-world experience and begin building a professional network through its national and international internships.
We tailor internship experiences and provide career development guidance according to each student’s individual interests, academic specializations and/or professional goals. Students who complete the Catholic Studies program are therefore fully prepared upon their graduation to take next steps toward a wide range of professions, vocations and specialties within every discipline across all fields and interests.
Catholic Studies’ three credit practicum, CAST 3891 Internship in Catholic Studies, provides an opportunity for students to obtain professional experience and to network with various national and international Catholic-related schools, hospitals, ministries, social justice agencies and/or non-governmental organizations. The activities of these agencies and organizations draw their inspiration from or demonstrate an engagement with the Catholic Intellectual Tradition and the applications of its core values of respect, compassion, caring and stewardship.
In addition to offering CAST 3891 Internship in Catholic Studies, the department also works closely with The Career Center to match undergraduate students with an additional 600 university-approved internships; partners with College Student Personnel Administration and Higher Education programs to host internships for graduate students; and connects with the Division of Volunteer Efforts (DOVE) to recommend students for their international service program.
If you are a student who is interested in participating in an internship or your organization would like to learn more about hosting a Catholic Studies student intern, please contact Dr. Ines A. Murzaku at Ines.Murzaku@shu.edu or (973) 275-5845.
