Palmer Seminary has recently made a semester-long internship in Washington, D.C. an option for students pursuing a Master of Theological Studies degree with a concentration in Public Policy. Students choose an organization in the nation's capitol to work with. The internship experience includes the opportunity to study under and interact with such public policy experts as the Seminary’s Ron Sider, bestselling author Tony Campolo, and Jim Wallis, founder of the Washington-D.C.-based Sojourners community.
The internship, which will be offered each Fall semester beginning in 2011, is designed to be taken at or near the end of the MTS degree program, following the completion of all (or most) coursework. Thus, those who wish to do the internship in the Fall of 2011 need to take a full load of courses during the 2010-11 academic year. For more information, please contact the Palmer Seminary Admissions Office at 484-384-2948 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
